A marketing and communications executive with over 16 years of operational and management experience in various influential leadership roles, Musi has a business acumen, befitting her new dual position.

Musi says, "Today’s business world is changing daily and, in South Africa, the role of senior females has become even more paramount."

Her experience includes, but is not limited to, PR and communications, advertising and marketing management, strategic planning, financial management, research, and client relationship management.

An AAA School of Advertising and Wits Business School graduate, Musi aims to invest in her personal and professional development, continually supplementing her studies with courses in negotiations, strategic sponsorships, human resources, and economics.

Musi is due to complete her master of business administration (MBA) by March 2018, which focuses on how technological innovative solutions, primarily through mobile platforms, can be used to propel the continent into a faster growth trajectory.

Haydn Townsend, Wunderman SSA group CEO, says he is proud to have Musi on board and is excited by where the growing digital agency is heading. He adds, "Kagiso has a remarkable ability to think laterally and has built up a reputation as a decisive and self-motivated individual." 

"Her interactive and motivational management style fits our agency culture very well, and her pragmatic approach to problem-solving is complementary to our leadership team’s construct," he says.

Musi has been involved in various organisations, including being a member of the MAC Transformation Charter, a former board member of the Association for Communication and Advertising, and a trustee on the board of Young Entrepreneurs South Africa.

"I aim to foster young talent in all of my roles," Musi adds.
