KANU Commercial Body Construction announced the appointment of its new Board recently.
Newly appointed Board Chairman Billy Tom (Isuzu Motors South Africa Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director) leads a dynamic new KANU Board consisting of Mandlakazi Sigcawu (Isuzu Motors South Africa Executive: Corporate and Public Affairs), Duvan de Ridder (KANU: Finance Manager), Michiyuki Miura (Isuzu Motors South Africa Chief Financial Officer) and Ingo Epler-Brandenburg (KANU Commercial Body Construction Chief Operating Officer).
KANU Commercial Body Construction is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Isuzu Motors South Africa, which operates independently and was established in 2015 to create extended value to commercial vehicle customers.
This strategic business move has ensured that Isuzu, together with KANU, has the capacity to initiate and build products according to client specifications. KANU specialises in the design and manufacturing of innovative body applications and custom-built solutions.
“KANU is known for its innovative solutions and the company continues to create the required solution for you – no matter how high, remote or off-road the work may be. Our aim, as the incoming board, is to continue with the hard work,” said Ingo Epler-Brandenburg, KANU Commercial Body Construction’s Chief Operating Officer.
For the first time, a woman has been appointed to the KANU Board, with the selection of Mandlakazi Sigcawu. Sigcawu recently joined Isuzu as Department Executive: Corporate and Public Affairs and comes with a wealth of leadership experience.
She previously held a leadership role at a Fortune 500 company, where she was the Head of Communication and Transformation, managing projects across East and Southern African markets.
