VUT Vice-Chancellor and Principal: Professor Gordon Zide
As part of the University’s aggressive fundraising drive, Vice-Chancellor, Professor Gordon Zide, together with the Director of Resource Mobilisation, Dr. Narissa Ramdhani, has been meeting with major industry players in South Africa with a view to securing their involvement in and alignment to the work of VUT. The most recent meeting took place at the headquarter of Motus Holding where the VUT team met with the CEO (Mr. Osman Arbee) of Motus Holdings, a JSE listed group. After unbundling from the Imperial Group, Motus was listed on the Stock Exchange. Today the company is the largest and leading Automotive Group with over 18500 employees and an international presence in the United Kingdom and Australia.
The discussions have opened many exciting possibilities for VUT.
