We want to congratulate Johan Fourie on his appointment as the Chief Operating Officer of EMIT.
During the last 3 years EMIT went through various exciting changes that resulted in exponential growth. Our Institutes and Programs in Africa more than doubled during this period. The new “Women Empowerment” Institutes contributed to this exciting growth. Johan played a vital part in all of these processes.
Like most of our full-time staff, Johan had to wear many hats over the years. He was the project leader of Zambia, Madagascar and South Africa. He managed and grew these programs during very difficult times, with extinction. It was his managerial and administrative gifts that EMIT benefited the most from. Johan designed and developed our Student Administration program. This is now used all over Africa to track our student information and results.
He also revised and modernized our IT Department. Johan played a leading role in our rebranding process and is still in charge of these departments.
EMIT is blessed to have a man of the quality and character of Johan on its staff. He is a level header leader and is not fazed by circumstances. His love for the leader of Africa is undeniable.
EMIT wishes Johan well in this challenging new position. We pray God’s favour upon him and his family as they continue to serve Christ through EMIT.
