PROTEA HOSPITALITY GROUP EMPLOYS MALEMA
Khathu Malema has just been appointed National Sales Manager for the Protea Hospitality Group. The post, which was vacant for some time, “was waiting for someone of Khathu’s expertise and we are extremely pleased to welcome him aboard”, said Group Sales Director Charmaine Hardwick.
Malema leaves behind five years at Transnet to lead Protea Hospitality Groups’ national sales team, the largest sales team in the hospitality industry.
He holds an International Relations Degree from UKZN and is a veteran business development manager. Malema left Transnet as a Mineral and Mining Senior Account Executive after a four-year stint with the company. Previously he was Government and Projects Key Account Manager with The Courier & Freight Group.
Malema is no stranger to the hospitality industry, though, with sales experience at Sandton’s Hilton Hotel.
Hardwick said she had no doubt Malema would make an outstanding addition to her strong and motivated sales team. “With Khathu’s hand guiding them I expect even greater things,” she said.
