Johannesburg - A new department head has been appointed in the Western Cape's transport and public works section, MEC Robin Carlisle said in a statement on Thursday.

Jacqui Gooch would replace Johan Fourie, due to retire in October after 40 years of public service, Carlisle said.

"It was my privilege to have served with him, and I look forward to working with the new HOD in taking this department to even greater heights."

Gooch is from Cape Town. She obtained her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Cape Town in 1998 and her Master of Engineering (Civil) from Stellenbosch University in 2003.

After that she joined the provincial department of transport and public works.

In 2005, she became the director of strategic support in the department and in 2009 was appointed deputy director general for strategy, planning, and co-ordination.

"I have no doubt that Ms Gooch has what it takes to manage this truly massive undertaking. Jacqui has begun her three-month “transfer of skills” period as HOD designate, working very closely with Fourie.

"She will officially take up the reins on 1 November," Carlisle said.
