22 September 2015 Dr Zameer Brey takes up a position at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
The South African Tuberculosis Vaccine Initiative (SATVI) announces the departure of Dr Zameer Brey, who left SATVI at the end of August to join the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Dr Brey, a qualified medical practitioner, was Chief Operations Officer at SATVI, where a hallmark of his tenure has been to drive the improvement of efficiency and quality. He has been in this position since joining SATVI in 2012.
SATVI Director Mark Hatherill said that Zameer had made a tremendous contribution to the development of systems, improving efficiencies, and fine-tuning the operational team. SATVI’s current healthy financial and organisational structures owe much to his efforts over the past 3 years. Zameer will be sorely missed, but we are sure he will make a great success of his new position at the Foundation.
