JOHANNESBURG – MES has appointed Helena van Blerk in the role of Kempton Park Brand Manager of MES with effect from 1 October 2019. This appointment follows a period of Ms Van Blerk acting in the position for two months after the end of the tenure of the previous branch manager, Duane Edwards, in August 2019.
MES Board Chairman Rev. Hannes Windell welcomed the appointment. “We are sure that Helena will continue to add a lot of value in her new role, drawing from her appropriate experience during a successful career spanning 30 years,” says Windell.
In her new role as MES Kempton Park Branch Manager, she will continue with her role of being the branch’s finance officer in addition to her managerial role. Helena is described as a compassionate woman of God who has a heart for people. “These qualities were evident from the time she started working at MES Kempton Park, as she automatically took it upon herself to be involved in the weekly Bible study for the food parcel clients, monthly street outreaches as well as the weekly shelter outreaches,” states Rev. Johan Krige, Acting CEO of MES.
