The South African Business School Association (Sabsa) has appointed Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS) Dean Professor Nicola Kleyn as its new president.
Kleyn who was appointed dean at GIBS in April 2015, is widely published on the topics of business ethics, branding and reputation management in several academic journals.
“I look forward to serving Sabsa members and the broader community. The organisation has made significant progress in the last few years under the stewardship of recent presidents Professor Owen Skae of Rhodes Business School and Professor Steve Bluen of Wits Business School,” Kleyn said in a statement.
Sabsa executive director Dr Millard Arnold said the organisation’s aim is to support its members to maintain global standards, thereby helping their management students lead businesses and contribute to the country’s economy.
“I am confident that Nicola will step up to the challenge of the new role and help us deliver on our mandate,” he said.
