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:
JAM’s Founders, Ann and her late husband, Peter, resolved to do whatever they could to help alleviate the suffering of people on the African continent, borne from what Peter witnessed while visiting a war-torn and famine-stricken Mozambique in the early 1980’s-the driving force behind establishing the organisation that Ann has served since its inception.
Together they received several prestigious awards including the 2018 African Ubuntu Award for Social Responsibility and were one of five finalists in the AidEx 2014 Humanitarian Hero of the Year Award.
Ann’s skillset and experience in administration and marketing have helped steer the organization and after Peter’s passing in August 2018, Ann stepped into the position of Chief Executive Officer of the JAM Group.
Referred to by many as “Mama JAM” because of her heart for the development of the people of Africa, she is a highly motivated and empathetic woman, passionate for the cause.
This mother of six, enjoys 14 grandchildren and has a great appreciation for the value of family.
