Bertina Engelbretcht has made history in her appointment as the the first lady CEO of the leading health and beauty retailer. Vikesh Ramsunder left Clicks as the CEO and Engelbretcht who was an attorney, the Group Corporate Affairs Director will begin his new Role in January 2022. This makes her the first African woman to lead the JSE-listed retail group.On her belt Engelbrecht has amazing appointments, she worked at Shell SA Energy as the general manager,Director at Organisational Effectiveness at Sea Harvest and worked there for a decade with the logistics giant, Transnet.
Clicks is one sustainable growth company and a big applaud must be given to the experienced executive team. She is ecstatic to be the leader of the strong team as from January 2022. As per David Nurek he feels that Engelbrecht's appointment was the best move for Clicks. The appointment of Bertina is a highlight of the internal success and the incredible talent and commitment to sustainable transformation, development within the company. The out going CEO has a jon opportunity in Australia and is leaving the country, which is a blow to South African Companies as the brain drain is taken away and will give his experience elsewhere. He is leaving the Clicks group and South Africa with a heavy heart, but as we all know people are looking for greener pastures if an opportunity arises it is always good to grab it.
He feels honoured in having been given a chance to lead the Clicks group, and being a part of such a dynamic transformed business makes him very proud. Looking at the appointment of Bertina as the incoming CEO put women on the mark, the president said on his speech earlier this year that women are suppose to be given jobs, not just jobs but top ones as they are hard workers who looks are the family. Her merits will put the Clicks on another level, and by so doing it will help in the mentoring of the younger women and elderly as well. Many women think that their place is in the kitchen but people like Bertina are indeed a motivation.
