Ahmed Essop appointed as chief executive of South Africa’s Council on Higher Education

Mr Ahmed Essop was recently appointed as the new chief executive of South Africa’s Council on Higher Education. He succeeds Cheryl de la Rey, who left the council last year after becoming the University of Pretoria’s first black and first female vice-chancellor. Former vice-chancellor and education consultant, Rolf Stumpf, has been acting chief executive in the interim.

Mr Essop holds a Masters in International Development Education from Stanford University in the USA, and is very well known in higher education circles having served for many years as Chief Director in the Higher Education Branch of the former Department of Education, and more recently as an independent consultant in higher education. He also served as Director at the Centre for Education Policy Development. He is well acquainted with the many challenges facing higher education in South Africa as well as the CHE as he was deeply involved in most of the policy initiatives aimed at transforming our higher education system during the period 1997 to 2005

He will take up his post in May.
