The APSP is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr Tavengwa Nhongo as its first Executive Director with effect from 1st January 2011.
Dr. Nhongo was selected from among a strong pool of candidates that were identified through a rigorous recruitment process led and supported by an independent Human Resource Development and Recruitment firm and the APSP board of directors.
Dr Nhongo has extensive experience which spans over 30 years gained in public, private and international development institutions.
