Struik Christian Media, South Africa’s largest publisher and distributor of Christian content in Southern Africa, bids farewell to Fiona Lee, who is retiring after leading the business for 21 years. Having reached retirement age last September, Lee chose to stay on as managing director for a few more months, but now will fully retire.
“Fiona will be sorely missed, and we thank her for her tremendous dedication and unwavering commitment to the business and our partners,” a statement from the company said.
Adrian Kaplan has been appointed as general manager with a focus on managing Struik’s key partner relationships. Kaplan will report to Lois O’Brien, who will become managing director and has more than 20 years publishing and distribution experience in Southern Africa and globally.
Brian Wootton, outgoing managing director of Times Media's book businesses, will continue to provide guidance to Struik in a consultancy capacity.
