Posted 19 March 2015 · Add Comment

Airports Company South Africa has appointed Refentse Shinners as the new group executive: corporate affairs. The position is a newly created role following the company's leadership realignment earlier last year.


Shinners joins the company from South African Breweries where she was corporate affairs manager for the SAB North Region.
Shinners is part of the Airports Company South Africa executive committee and reports directly to company CEO, Bongani Maseko. Her immediate task would be to ensure a smooth transition from the old Communications and Brand Management Division to Corporate Affairs, which is a new division in the company.
Maseko said: “We are pleased to welcome Refentse to the company. She brings a wealth of experience and valuable know-how. I am confident that she will provide strategic insight and counsel as we build an efficient and customer-focused company. She will play a critical role in our efforts to enhance strong relations with key stakeholders in order to entrench the accessibility and credibility of the company’s leadership and voice”.
Shinners sits on the Board of Footballers for Life, an NGO that provides wellness programmes and life skills coaching for footballers. She is also part of the Board of Advisors for Africa Innovative Publishing.
“I look forward to this new challenge and playing a role in enhancing Airport Company South Africa’s already sound reputation. I am excited about joining the business and especially at such an interesting time for the company and where it’s heading in the near future.” Shinners said.
