Anneke Pienaar

Pienaar commenced her career in the hotel industry as a receptionist at the Southern Sun Holiday Inn Garden Court Airport in 1999, having earned a national diploma in hospitality management the year prior. She joined CLHG as junior assistant manager of Town Lodge Nelspruit (now Mbombela) in 2006. Her career trajectory included positions as senior assistant manager of Town Lodge Menlo Park in 2008, general manager of Road Lodge Germiston in 2009 and general manager of Road Lodge Mbombela in 2011.

Pienaar set off on her East African adventure as general manager of City Lodge Hotel Dar Es Salaam in Tanzania in 2018. During her time in Tanzania, she broadened her horizons and experience through her exposure to operating out of the norms of South Africa and capably grasped the nuances of working in a foreign country, such as compliance and local culture. Pienaar joins the Maputo team with the confidence and ability to fly the CLHG flag high and blend the flavours of Mozambique with the group’s South African heritage.
