TANKISO MALEKELA

Tankiso is currently the Brandserve Group Deputy CEO responsible for providing strategic direction to the group, increasing depth of services offering, shaping operational innovation and executional excellence to better serve our clients’ brands.

Agreeing upfront with clients on service level agreements and expectations insures that the client’s expectations are met and the client knows what they are buying.

Employee wellbeing is of critical importance to me and I want Brandserve to be the preferred employer of first choice in the sales and marketing outsourced services agency market through its subsidiaries.

I believe that technology and data management is an enabler that insures Brandserve will continue to innovate and remain proactive and solutions focused.
