We are very happy to welcome back Jackie Ackerman, who has replaced Lizelle Schutte as the new General Manager of Midlands Veterinary Wholesalers.
Jackie previously ran the MVW Johannesburg Branch very successfully until May 2015 and has returned to take the new position as General Manager from 1 March 2017. Jackie grew up in Gauteng, spending her school years on the East Rand after which she graduated as a Pharmacist at the University of the North West in 1994. She gained valuable managerial experience working in Retail Pharmacy until she moved into Distribution and Warehousing in the early 2000’s. Jackie completed her B.Com Management degree, cum laude, at Unisa in 2014. She is also a Registered Assessor and has a passion for training.
“My aim will be to create a pleasant working environment where all staff continuously focus on customer service, which includes striving for the best-priced offer, on time deliveries and outstanding after sales service while complying with MCC requirements. My primary goal and strategic intent is to grow MVW into a dominant player with a leading market share in South Africa. This will be done in a co-ordinated and paced way. Consistent profitable revenue growth will become our DNA. Along the way I shall ensure that we upscale our staff, building the desired competencies through training and development. MVW has a great team and I shall endeavour to empower them to perform by guiding their direction, energise and motivate them and communicate our progress on an ongoing basis.”
Jackie is married and is the loving mom of three kids, all still at school.
We wish Jackie all of the very best in leading our strategic growth and operational efficiencies across all MVW branches and we are sure she will make a significant impact.
