Air Traffic and Navigation Services (ATNS) SOC Limited has announced the appointment of Lulekwa Ngcwabe, as its new Human Resources (HR) Executive. She has over a decade’s senior management experience and joins ATNS from the City of Johannesburg’s Metrobus entity, where she was General Manager responsible for Corporate Services.
Prior to that, she was employed at Road Traffic Infringement Agency (RTIA) as Senior Executive Manager, Corporate Services. It was at RTIA where Ngcwabe showed her leadership acumen by being instrumental in setting up the Human Resources Management Division.
Ngcwabe has an impeccable career journey. She was appointed to senior HR management roles at Eskom, National Prosecuting Authority, Eastern Cape Parks Board and National Department of Sport, Arts and Culture.
Thomas Kgokolo, interim ATNS CEO, says: “The intention is to afford all staff opportunities to learn and develop, either within their immediate sphere or beyond the simplest daily job routine. This inevitably means that our company is depending on its employees to identify, create and make use of available opportunities to develop themselves beyond traditional work-based training, as retention of staff is key. This is one of Ms Ngcwabe’s mandate – to entrench this philosophy within ATNS.”
“The face of our Executive Committee is changing. The appointment of experts and thought-leaders in leadership positions in this company, especially women, is no coincidence. It has become the norm,” concludes Kgokolo.
Ngcwabe holds a Bachelor of Administration degree from Walter Sisulu University, a Masters’ in Business Administration (MBA) degree and a Postgraduate Diploma in Doctoral Studies from the prestigious Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS). She completed a range of courses including Strategic HR Leadership Programme (Stellenbosch University Business School), Programme in Business Leadership (UNISA School of Business Leadership) and the Global Executive Development Programme (GIBS). She currently serves as a member of the Corporate Committee of the Gauteng Gambling Board and previously chaired the HR Committee of RTIA.
