We are pleased to announce that Etienne de Villiers, Principal Consultant in the Johannesburg office, will take over as the Bara SA Managing Director from January 1 2023. In this role he will be responsible for business development, corporate development and management of the South African company. Jim Pooley, founder and SA MD has stepped down and will assume the position of Group Chairman concerned with strategy, business development and corporate development for the Bara Group overall, including SA, UK, International, and nascent offices in the Americas and SE Asia.
As Bara we’d like to take this opportunity to wish Etienne all the best in his new position, he is a very capable guy and are sure he will make a huge success of it. To all our associates, partners and clients, thank you for supporting us on our journey as we have grown the company thus far, trusting that Etienne will enjoy similar possibly even better support as he takes over the reigns.
