Musa Kalenga appointed as Group CEO for Brave Group
After a successful empowerment transaction that saw an individual agency transform into a communications group with an international footprint, the Brave Group continues to implement its business strategy of being a world-class, integrated independent creative agency.
Karabo Songo stepped down from the role of Group Chief Executive Officer as of 1 June 2022.
Songo says, ‘My goal has always been to make history with any role that I play and I feel like I’ve achieved that. For now, I have to focus on being a strong follower and support as a non-executive director and shareholder.’
The then Managing Director of digital business unit – Motherboard – as well as director and shareholder of Brave Group, Musa Kalenga, was appointed as the new Group Chief Executive Officer effective from 1 June 2022. Kalenga and Songo will spend the next few months transitioning the business.
Brave Group Chair Andile Khumalo says, ‘Musa is a credible leader and well-known digital marketing expert. He has also steered Motherboard to becoming one of the country’s most respected digital marketing operations, and I have no doubt he will bring the same energy and focus to the GCEO role.’
Khumalo continues, ‘Karabo has been hugely successful over the last four-and-a-half years in building the Group into a company that now operates an integrated full-service offering to its clients across various markets.’
