This announcement coincides with WASPA’s 20th anniversary, marking two decades of innovation and industry leadership.


Three new appointees

The 20th anniversary AGM elections brought notable changes, with three new appointments: Dylin Kuni as Treasurer, Markus Schorn heading the Fraud Working Group, and Tsepang Nenzinane overseeing the Code of Conduct. They join re-elected members Casper de Villiers, Rory Anderson, and Sean Nieuwoud (Vice Chairperson) to complete the WASPA Board for 2024–2026.

Well experienced in the industry

They are poised to uphold the association’s tradition of fostering innovation, promoting best practices, and advocating for a vibrant, sustainable, and secure ecosystem.

As we enter our third decade, we remain committed to driving the industry forward and addressing the evolving needs of our members.”

Since its establishment in 2004, WASPA has been crucial in fostering a fair and competitive environment for wireless application service providers.
