Proverb appointed as Flight Centre SA's first non-executive board director member

Flight Centre Travel Group (FCTG) South Africa has appointed Tebogo Thekisho, better known as entertainer extraordinaire ProVerb, to its FCM Travel Solutions and FCTG Corporate boards as a non-executive director.

ProVerb is an entrepreneur, recording artist, has worked in radio since 2003 and is a recognised influencer in South Africa, having hosted Idols SA, Miss SA and a range of well-known radio slots at South African radio stations, including 94.7 and most recently Kaya FM.

ProVerb’s appointment as non-executive director on the FCM and FCTG Corporate boards will allow FCTG Africa to hear and learn from someone who comes with a unique perspective to the travel business, says FCTG MD Andrew Stark.

“He has a passion for travel and has a commitment to seeing both these companies grow. ProVerb is a very well-known personality in the entertainment industry, which has a business appeal. We see potential in each other and an opportunity to make a difference for each other. He also represents an opportunity to open up the world to new markets who want to see.”

ProVerb fits in exceptionally well with the unique culture of FCTG, says Kevin Backhouse, CFO FCTG. 

“We’re a young and vibrant company, on the cutting edge of travel innovation. He will add a lot of value because he understands this innovative culture, which separates us from any of our competitors.” 

ProVerb says he hopes this appointment will allow him to bridge the gap between his two passions: Travel and Entertainment. “I aim to use my networks, resources and influence to create new business and forge relationships, but also to grow the business and help steer it to a new market.”

“I am absolutely obsessed with travel, and I believe it’s a necessity to travel as often as possible, as far as possible and for as long as possible. Seeing the world and having new experiences opens your mind, changes you as a person and enriches your life,” says ProVerb.
