A new CEO for SAACI
Congratulations to Rudi van der Vyver, the new and recently appointed CEO for the Southern African Association for the Conference Industry (SAACI).
Following the resignation of previous ceo, Adriaan Liebetrau, SAACI received over 40 CVs from interested parties applying for the position.
“From the outset, Rudi presented a clear and stabilising plan for the association and after reviewing with our Board, an offer was made,” says SAACI chair, Wayne Johnson. “We are very pleased to have him on board and look forward to his contribution towards our association and members.”
Van der Vyver holds a BCom (Hons) degree in marketing with the designation of Chartered Marketer CM (SA). He has held leadership positions during tenures within the financial services industry and has worked for large international corporates, including FNB and TransUnion (Credit Bureau).
He then moved into an executive management role within the business consulting space, after which he made the transition to hospitality and business events by joining Orion Hotels and Resorts’ executive management team as head of National Sales.
“I enjoy the hospitality and business events industry immensely and look forward to continuing the great work done by SAACI. We will only be getting stronger. Through creating a stable and growing platform for the association, we will strengthen and positively influence the business events industry landscape across Southern Africa,” says Van der Vyver.
