The Senior Director of Communication & Marketing is Chantal Janneker. 

Ms Janneker comes with a wealth of communication and marketing experience, having worked in high-performing, results-driven environments in both the private and public sectors since 1997.

With an MBA and BA degree specialising in English and Communication from the University of South Africa (Unisa), Ms Janneker has a strong track record of positioning organisations to achieve tangible outcomes in highly competitive and politicized environments. She works closely with executives and senior management in providing thought leadership opportunities towards positioning companies.

Most recently, she was responsible for the internal and external communications reputation management portfolios for the Office of the CEO, Investor Relations, Human Resources and Governance for Old Mutual Limited. In supporting that company’s recent move from the London Stock Exchange to the Johannesburg Stock Exchange as an independent, standalone entity, Ms Janneker and her team hosted employee and stakeholder relations roadshows from London through its Pan-African offices and into to our own country, staged an opening gala dinner addressed by President Cyril Ramaphosa and ensured the relevant supporting media profiling.

Her ability to turn-around both public and media perception of companies has not gone unnoticed, and she has received various awards for these and other such achievements. She was, for example, largely responsible for positioning the South African National Energy Corporation (Necsa) as a preferred partner in key international markets after a challenging environmentalist, anti-nuclear campaign.
