This was his first visit to the American firm’s operations in Port Elizabeth since he arrived in South Africa as the new Consul General in September last year. The key focus of his visit was to introduce himself to General Motors in South Africa and to learn more about the motor industry in the country. “We also utilised the opportunity to highlight the important role our company has to play within our economy and also more broadly within our local community,” said Elvis Hermans, Government Relations & Public Policy Manager.
Taylor met with the President of GM Africa, Mario Spangenberg, Ian Nicholls, Vice President of GM South Africa Operations; Elvis Hermans, Government Relations & Public Policy Manager and Denise van Huyssteen,
In a diplomatic career spanning three decades, Taylor has served tours in Latin America, Europe, the Caribbean, the South Pacific, and now Africa. He most recently completed a two year assignment as a Diplomat in Residence at Howard University in Washington, D.C.
