We are extremely excited to announce the appointment of Ms. Cathi Nel as IMATU’s new Deputy General Secretary for Operations.
Cathi matriculated at Kimberley Girls High in the Northern Cape in 1992. Thereafter she obtained B. Proc and LLB degrees from the University of the Free State. She is currently completing the final year of a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree.
Prior to joining IMATU in 2005, Cathi was in private practice as an admitted attorney of the High Court and was a prosecutor with the National Prosecuting Authority.
Cathi joined IMATU in 2005 as the Regional Manager for the Northern Cape Region. After a restructuring of the organisation, Cathi was deployed to the Eastern Cape Region and subsequently became Regional Manager for the eThekwini and Kwa-Zulu Natal Regions in 2016.
Cathi has extensive senior management experience, which includes strategic and financial management over and above operational management. She will bring a wealth of knowledge, skills and experience to this senior management position.
Cathi is in the process of handing over operations in the eThekwini and Kwa-Zulu Natal Regions and will join the national office full time from 1 September this year. Cathi has two children, Ina a first-year student and Hennie a high school scholar and her partner, Thomas, who will be relocating with Cathi to Pretoria.
We wish Cathi all the best for the next phase of her career and we are confident that she will lead IMATU’s operations with great distinction.
