Netafim Announcement

04 Jun 2018

We are pleased to share with you a change we recently made to our organizational structure through 2 promotions. We're confident that this change will strengthen our ability to capture the growth opportunities in SADC without conceding the good momentum we have in the South African market.

Johan Visser Southern SADC Regional ManagerAs of 1 June 2018, Johan Visser will undertake the position of Southern SADC Regional Manager. Johan Visser started his career at Netafim South Africa in December 1992 and since 2005 led the RSA Sales Team to achieve great successes. With his resilience and passion for sales Johan will assist Netafim RSA to broaden and leverage its footprint in the SADC market. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Johan for the excellent work he did as National Sales Manager in RSA over the last 13 years and wish him all the best for the new challenge.

Willem Smith - National Sales ManagerIn addition to this move as of 1 June 2018, Willem Smit will undertake the position of National Sales Manager and join our management team. Willem Smit’s background encompasses more than 30 years of Irrigation and Designing Knowledge, joining Netafim in January 2007 as Technical Advisor. Willem is known for building strong relationships both inside and outside Netafim and contributed hugely to the growth of Netafim South Africa in the Western Cape region.

I believe these changes will inject fresh energy in our region and I’m confident that with the support of our field team Johan and Willem will make sure we capture all the exciting opportunities ahead!

Best of luck with the new challenge Johan and Willem.
