Leadership Team

JAM South Africa is led by a dedicated team, responsible for steering JAM’s strategic direction and activities. The team is responsible for overseeing the efficient and effective running of the company, as well as increasing the presence of JAM South Africa in the public, private and non-profit sector for the benefit of those we serve.

Here’s a brief synopsis of JAM International’s leadership team, specifically relating to each of their areas of education, expertise and interests:

In 1984, after witnessing thousands of Mozambicans, mostly infants and young children, dying from starvation, they founded JAM International.

Affectionately known by many as ‘Mama JAM’, due to her passion for the people of Africa, Ann is a highly motivated, compassionate and emotional woman, passionate for the cause.

Amongst other gifting’s, Ann has great talents in administration and marketing, and her dedicated contributions in these areas have brought JAM to where it is today – serving more than 1.2 billion meals to its beneficiaries over more than three decades.

David holds B.Sc. (Building) and MBL degrees and commenced his career as an Industrial Engineer. He gained experience in the FMCG and food processing industries and spent a number of years in strategic and operational consulting, both locally and internationally in a wide range of sectors. David considers it a privilege to be able to be involved in the important work that JAM does, serving the beneficiaries and people of South Africa as Country Director.
