The former managing director of the company has had a fulfilling time serving in the position and I am here to consolidate what he has achieved. The company has a great future and it is an opportunity for someone like me to be part of that future. I know it is a challenge given the fact that the former managing director who founded the company has set high standards. We hope to maintain those standards. I believe I have to play my part in the evolution of the company.”
