Mr. Pillay holds a Degree in Economics from the University of Cape Town (UCT), a Post Graduate Diploma in Business Administration and Management from the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS) and an MBA from GIBS.
Pillay believes in a stakeholder-centric, innovation-powered approach to leadership and has a proven track record of being actively involved at the executive management level for the past 12 years. This has included managing large teams in the successful formulation and implementation of corporate strategy.
He joins the CHIETA following his previous role as Director of Stakeholder Management in the office of the Minister of Higher Education, Science, and Technology. He prides himself on being a leader who understands the importance of relationship building and the power of appreciating the value of the people he works with.
One of the highlights of his eminent career includes his tenure as the Executive Chairperson of the National Youth Development Agency (NYDA), during which he was able to lead the organisation to its first-ever clean audit outcome in 2015, after only two years in office. “It was a significant lesson in leadership. It taught me the importance of trust and how to bring out the best in people,” said Pillay. Another significant highlight was his appointment as the Chairperson of the Information, Communications, and Technology (ICT) committee at Airports Company South Africa (ACSA). “The experience of being a digital leader has been a truly fulfilling one,” said Pillay.
As the incoming CEO of the CHIETA, he hopes to motivate and inspire the amazing people at the CHIETA, encouraging them to unite and co-create a shared vision and mission. “My role is to catalyse the collective wisdom and leadership within the CHIETA.” said Pillay. This will coincide with his plans to address the common challenges within the CHIETA while working towards the goals of growth, job creation, and social development that are outlined in the NSDP 2030.
“We need to close the skills gap in the Chemical Industries, which can only be achieved through a greater focus on transformation, underpinned by innovative principles, practices, and strategies,” said Pillay. He believes that innovation starts with the frontline employee and that every employee has the potential to be innovative. As the organisational leader, he plans to find ways to unlock this innovation potential, while ensuring that it is aligned with the CHIETA’s goals. Mr Pillay wants to play his part in striving to position the CHIETA as the best and most innovative SETA in the skills development and training landscape.
When discussing his plans to address the chemical industries’ skills development needs and implementation within the current Covid-19 landscape: Firstly, he emphasised the need for all South Africans to play their part in being responsible citizens as well as leading by example to engender a safe and secure society. “As a responsible organisation and a responsible corporate citizen, we must ask tough questions and develop a deeper understanding of the problems that our society is facing. We need to develop a deeper understanding of our purpose as an institution and why we exist in the first place.” said Pillay.
Where promoting the adoption of STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths) and the opportunities that it presents for young unemployed people in South Africa is concerned, he stressed the importance of promoting STEM education amongst the youth. From where he’s sitting, STEM education is important
