Since FITA’s inception, Allan De Wit has worked tirelessly to promote the aims and objectives of FITA. His passion for training and upliftment of skills development is well known. He is a man with a vision and will work non-stop to make that vision a reality. Allan has graciously invested his knowledge and expertise into FITA, which has enabled the organisation to make giant leaps forward.

In turn, Patty has served as FITA’s Training Director since February 2014. Her role has changed as her interaction with industry leaders increased. Patty has become the face of FITA, and in acknowledgement of her efforts to promote and represent FITA, she has been offered this directorship. Patty will continue to serve as the Training Director.

Tandy has a wealth of experience and FITA is delighted to announce her appointment as chairman. She has been in the flooring industry since 1994 and holds a B. Com Accounting degree. Tandy is a FITA founding Director and has invested her time and expertise to FITA since its inception in 2013 and as such, the association will benefit greatly under her leadership.

It will be exciting to see how these leaders continue to serve the objectives of the organisation and transform the flooring industry one day at a time.
