The Botswana Olympic Committee appointed Botho Bayendi as their new Chief Executive Officer on a five-year contract.
The former Botswana Investment and Trade Centre Executive Director of Business Intelligence has more than 19 years of corporate work experience.
Bayendi is taking over a position that had been held by Wedu Motswetla on an interim basis following the departure of Tuelo Serufho in 2021.
The seasoned leader promised to provide excellence, saying: “I feel so privileged to be joining the BNOC, I believe I am leveraging on the trust that is bestowed upon me and it’s a sign of commitment and the seriousness I take into this responsibility.
“I believe that with the support that comes from the board I cannot fail, and I come from the corporate space, and I must admit that I come with zero balance in sports leadership, hence I must rely on all stakeholders.
“All I will be doing for the athletes and the organisation is providing excellence and what I want to plead from people is positive expectations, so we build the brand together.” she concluded.
