No stranger to the automotive industry

Following a short break in 2012, he returned to the Motus Group holding various roles at Mitsubishi Motors South Africa, including that of Operations Manager, and then moved to another senior role within the Motus Group – this time at Renault South Africa.

Enthusiastic about the challenge at hand
Magasa is extremely enthusiastic about the challenge on hand, and has made a great start within this new position.
“Having spent a large part of my career working at challenger brands, I have always found that it is undoubtedly the people within the organisation who make the difference,” he says. “I am highly passionate about the continuous development of people towards the achievement of organisational goals. Our end goal is to offer a consistently high-quality retail and ownership experience of our vehicles, which will be heavily reliant on our people – both within Mitsubishi Motors SA and the dealer network at large.”
We wish Thato well in his new role.
