Farewell to Prof Links, ex-Chairperson for MOT SA

Board Farewell - Prof, Trish, Zozo (2)

After 12 years, Prof Eltie Links has decided to step down as the chairperson.

Without his wise counsel, courage, and guidance, MOT SA would not have been able to accomplish many of the things we have in the last decade. He has tirelessly given his time and resources to build MOT and he has always believed and lived the MOT values and principles, always speaking well of MOT and the MOT Family whenever he has the chance.

Prof Links, as you look back on your time with us, please know that our achievements and growth would not have been possible without you.
