Tourvest Group Chair, Mr Robert Gumede expressed, “In his capacity as Group CFO, Mr Neswiswi has been instrumental in driving the company’s growth, both organically and through strategic acquisitions. His impeccable skills in capital allocation and managing stakeholder relations, were particularly evident during the COVID pandemic, thus ensuring the survival of the group. Under Mr Neswiswi’s stewardship we are confident of the continued development, growth and success of our business over the coming years. I am delighted that we have promoted internally, demonstrating the calibre of our team and Tourvest’s commitment to our people.”
