Celebrated musician, events management officer and arts promoter Tshidino Ndou has just been appointed the communication and marketing manager for Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila FC (TTM).
The football club had recently recruited Tshidino for the post and he accepted the offer. He was appointed with effect from 12 December.
“I accepted the offer when the president of TTM, Mr Masala Mulaudzi, broke the news that the management had taken a decision to hire me to head the club’s branding, communication and marketing department which became vacant when Mr Livhuwani Madzuhe joined JDR Stars,” said Tshidino. He has already met with the coach, Mr Henric Vladislav, and the players. He stated that making TTM one of the highly supported National First Division (NFD) clubs in the country was among the highlights of his plans.
“I want to relaunch all our supporter branches in Limpopo and Gauteng,” he said. “The club will also unveil its website very soon.”
The TTM structure is: Masala Mulaudzi (president), Humbulani Mphephu (chairperson), Sello Chokoe (chief executive officer), Heric Vladislav (head coach), Lucky Nelukau (assistant coach), Ricardo Miriri (team manager), Wisani Nemuremelane (physio), Chris Mulaudzi (logistics and transport), Tshidino Ndou (communication and marketing), Vhahangwele Madzivhandila (social media officer ) and Nemukula Dowelani (head of security).
Mulaudzi lauded Tshidino for his great communication and marketing skills that will help the team. He pointed out that being a brand ambassador was a challenging role that required discipline and commitment and added that Tshidino had all those attributes.
