After an extensive and competitive recruitment process, the new CEO of Cape Town Tourism has been announced as Enver Duminy.
The appointment was announced at the City of Cape Town’s Tourism, Events and Marketing Portfolio Committee meeting today and will take effect on 1 August 2013.
Duminy has held the title of Tourism Services Executive Manager at Cape Town Tourism for almost four years and has played an active role in crafting Cape Town Tourism’s new three year Business Plan.
He has built firm relationships at different levels within the tourism industry; a background that will inform his new role and enable him to ensure that the organisation continues to add value to the industry.
Says Duminy; “It’s an honour to accept this post of CEO with humility and appreciation of the service it will be to the tourism industry of Cape Town. Cape Town Tourism is an agile, innovative and passionate organisation and we will continue to uphold these values as I take the helm. As incumbent, I plan to focus my first 100 days on setting the roadmap with the Cape Town Tourism team as to how we will deliver our agreed strategic objectives and tactical plans. My predecessor Mariette, has been a source of inspiration and expertise and I wish her well in her future endeavours.”
Current Cape Town Tourism CEO, Mariette du Toit-Helmbold, commended Duminy on his appointment; “Enver has been a strong force within Cape Town Tourism and he is certainly ready to rise to the challenge. I wish him luck and can confirm that he is incredibly fortunate to head up a dynamic organisation such as Cape Town Tourism, working with an industry as passionate and committed as ours is.”
Du Toit-Helmbold will be launching her own destination and tourism marketing agency after her exit on 31 July 2013.
