JRA to get new MD

The Joburg Roads Agency (JRA) announced the appointment of its new managing director, Dr Sean Phillips, who will assume the new position with effect from 1 May. The board made this appointment following a rigorous selection process from a list of candidates.

A statement from the JRA revealed that Dr Phillips is a civil engineering professional with strong performance monitoring and evaluation experience at both national and municipal levels coupled with operational management expertise within local roads authorities. He has held the position of chief executive officer at the Municipal Infrastructure Support Agent, a government component in the Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs.

Additionally he also held the position of director general of the Department of Performance Monitoring and Evaluation in the Presidency, and previously held various positions within the private and public sectors. Dr Phillips holds a Masters in Management Degree (Cum Laude), a Doctorate in Civil Engineering, and a Masters in Science, all obtained from Wits University.

The statement continued that the JRA has embarked on a new phase of the City’s journey in road infrastructure and Dr Phillips’ vast experience in the engineering field and leadership skills will serve the City and the JRA well in the provision of quality roads that are safe, accessible and livable for our community.

JRA stated they acknowledge the leadership provided by Mpho Kau during his tenure as acting managing director over the past year. With Kau at the helm, the statement said that JRA achieved a clean audit for a second consecutive year, and he continued to strengthen the JRA’s turnaround strategy through an engineering-based approach to infrastructure development and maintenance.

The launch of the flagship bridges projects including the M1 bridges rehabilitation project have been significant achievements. Kau will resume his position as executive head of the Department of Infrastructure Development and will continue to be an integral and valued member of the executive team.
