The Exsa Board of Directors is proud to announce the appointment of our new Head of Marketing Nico Louw, who will officially be joining the Exsa team from September 2020.

Nico has an established marketing career in the South African fresh produce export sector, which started in 2009 with his appointment in the logistics department at Colors Fruit. Nico joined Global Pacific Produce as an Export Manager in 2010, and advanced to the position of Business Manager during his ten years with the company. His experiences over the past decade have equipped him with knowledge, skills and abilities in marketing, international logistics and operations, as well as the management of inventories, road transport and physical distribution.

Nico originally hails from the Northern Cape Province where he matriculated at Duineveld High School in Upington. He subsequently enrolled for undergraduate and postgraduate studies at the University of Stellenbosch, graduating with a Bachelor of Commerce degree in Management Accounting and an Honours in Logistics Management.

“It is a great honour and privilege to join Exsa and start a new chapter in my career with one of South Africa’s most renowned fruit exporters,” says Nico. “The name Exsa and what it represents in terms of quality, relationships and trust not only resonates on South African soil, but the far-reaching corners of the globe.

I believe that I will be a great fit to the Exsa team, and that by working together we will contribute even more significantly to the successes of this reputable company. Trusting and longstanding relationships, both internally and with our business partners, arguably lie at the heart of our future success. I also look forward to meeting all role players in the Exsa network, and to start planting the seeds for a rewarding, symbiotic and fruitful future together.”

We welcome Nico to the Exsa team and look forward to introducing him to all our producers, clients and business partners in due course.
