Vizeum South Africa appointed Sthanda Manciya and Marvin Kgasoane as the new business unit heads. They will be responsible for managing core clients.
They equally boast over 20 years of media experience, having worked with clients such as Unilever, DSTV, MTN, McDonald’s and the Brandhouse. Manciya and Kgasoane will be reporting directly to Kelvin Storie, Group Managing Director for Vizeum SA.
Kgasoane and Manciya hold a National Diploma in Advertising and a BA in Communications Science degree respectively.
Storie said, ‘I’m very pleased to welcome Manciya and Kgasoane to the senior leadership team at Vizeum Johannesburg. Vizeum has experienced a great amount of growth over the past few years and now is the time to build up the leadership team to support staff and myself in helping drive the evolution of Vizeum.
‘Both new joiners come with a wealth of knowledge and respective learnings, which will complement the team. Our value as an agency is people, and I’m looking forward to their contribution towards the Vizeum culture. Vizeum’s position in the market is ‘Accelerating Business Growth Through Media’. The need for strong, self-starters is even more prevalent and I have no doubt that both Manciya and Kgasoane will delight our client base.’
Although the main purpose of the job is strategic, in their new roles, Manciya and Kgasoane will be responsible for ensuring the quality of work across media strategies and media implementation output on a portfolio of clients, with a strong focus on building and maintaining client relationships. Through innovative and brilliant solutions, they will be able to deliver business value to clients, while focusing on financial targets and growing agency profitability.

My commitment will be deliberate with a view to make a substantial impression that impacts our clients’ businesses.’
