Lettie Mashau was appointed by the Board of Directors of Motheo Construction Group on 9 September 2019 as the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Mashau has been a part of the Motheo family for 14 years. Earmarked early on as Dr. Ndlovu’s successor, Mashau has been closely mentored by Dr. Ndlovu for many years.
Having grown up in the township of Malamulele, Limpopo, Mashau joined Motheo Construction Group as a trainee site Quantity Surveyor in 2005, having qualified with a Diploma in Building and Civil Engineering. Showing integrity, determination and initiative in the workplace, Mashau took the opportunities offered her by Motheo with both hands.
She quickly rose through the ranks. She is now a shareholder and Director at Motheo. Prior to taking up the position as CEO, she held direct oversight of all Northern Cape, Mpumalanga, Limpopo, North West, Free State, and Pretoria operations. Mashau has served on the Motheo Board since September 2011, which oversees the company’s national operations and strategic direction.
Mashau has, time and time again, raised the Motheo flag high. Her character and industry track record express the culture, ethos, and excellence that is Motheo. Whilst we all wish that Dr. Ndlovu was still with us, we know that this appointment would have been her hope. We believe that this appointment honours her legacy.
The Board of Directors of Motheo Construction Group have reaffirmed their commitment to the Dr. Thandi Ndlovu Children’s Foundation (www.drthandifoundation.com). Team Motheo will also seek ways in which we can meaningfully contribute towards arresting the curse of gender-based violence in South Africa.
