Fundi Sithebe

Chief Operating Officer- Airports Company South Africa

Fundi Sithebe is the Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Airports Company South Africa, appointed in December 2017. As the COO, her role is to direct, plan and lead the overall business operations (namely overall airports management, infrastructure asset management, technical services and solutions, enterprise security and information technology), ensuring that the business operations are set to achieve the company’s set performance commitments. She is responsible for the integration and seamless operations across the network of 9 airports. In addition, she is responsible for the Commercial Division – which is mainly responsible to non-aeronautical revenue, a large component of the business revenues.

She started her career as a management consultant, focussing in the areas of strategy and operations in several organisational strategic projects. She was part of the expansion team for a financial services organisation that crafted a strategy and was responsible for the successful establishment of operations in Africa – both greenfield and acquisition.

She holds a Bachelor of Business Administration from Midrand University, and a Post Graduate Diploma in Management (Business Administration) from Wits Business School. Her passion in the aviation industry was sparked in 2003, when she obtained her Private Pilot’s License (PPL).

She is a member of the Southern African Women in Aviation and Aerospace (SAWIA), Women in Aviation (W&A) as well as the current chair of Akani Aviation Leadership Initiative South Africa, a non-profit initiative that aims to ensure a larger and a sustainable base of females in the aviation industry.
