Bosch Holdings’ Chief Executive, Mike Gibbon, firmly believes that a focused initiative will be necessary to accelerate growth, both in new business and into new geographic areas.
Accordingly, Sid Turner has been appointed Bosch Holdings’ Business Development Director and tasked with:
- Creating an enabling business environment to support Bosch’s operating companies in meeting their growth objectives;
- Promoting the growth of existing operating companies into new geographic regions in South Africa, Africa and Brazil;
- Targeting specific clients and mega project opportunities from a collective Bosch Holdings perspective and supporting Bosch Holdings synergy and branding; and
- Identifying and developing aligned new niche business opportunities.
Sid, who assumed the position on 1st March 2014, has over 35 years’ experience in the construction industry, more than 20 of which have been at a senior executive level with Bosch.
He is excited about the prospect and says “I see this as an opportunity to make a contribution to the continued success of Bosch Holdings, as we extend our national footprint in South Africa and target significant growth in Africa. Although we have worked in 20 countries in Africa over the years, the establishment of the Bosch East Africa office in Nairobi just over a year ago is an important milestone. We believe Africa presents real opportunities for infrastructural development in both the public and private sectors and want to make our contribution” says Turner.
