It seems that the trucking, logistics and supply chain industries are producing winners all around given the news that Keabetswe ‘Kea’ Mpane, SAPICS director, has been nominated as a finalist in the 2014 Africa’s Most Influential Women in Business and Government awards.
Focusing on the achievements of South African businesswomen, the awards recognise the contribution of women in a range of business and government sectors and some of South Africa’s best-known and most celebrated women have been involved in these awards over the years.
The focus of Kea’s duties as SAPICS director includes providing guidance on logistics and supply chain solutions to the industry, mostly focused on people development and standard setting.
The candidates are selected through an anonymous nomination process, followed by in-depth profiling exercise that enables the judging panel to compile a list of semi-finalists. A further judging process whittles the list down to finalists that are asked a set of questions in a filmed face-to-face interview with the chairperson of the awards. The footage of the interview, together with the nomination forms, enables the judging panel to select a winner in each category.
According to SAPICS, the involvement of supply chain professionals of Kea’s calibre is one of the key components in guiding SAPICS to remain the preferred industry partner and FleetWatch joins SAPICS in wishing Kea every success for the awards presentation being held on July 30th in Johannesburg.
