Provincial Treasury said goodbye to another stalwart of the department at the end of February – Lenie la Grange.
Lenie started her career in the public sector nearly 40 years ago. She joined National Treasury System in 1991 as a Kadet Financial Administration Officer. She soon progressed to a Chief Financial Administration Officer and joined the Western Cape Provincial Treasury in 1997. Due to Lenie’s diligence in her work, she progressed from a junior level position to Deputy Director: LOGIS in 2012.
She was key in the implementation of many LOGIS sites and specifically the implementation of Red Cross Memorial Children’s Hospital and under her leadership she has implemented 98 LOGIS sites across Western Cape Government.
Going the extra mile: “Lenie always took the lead in the team and always showed willingness to go the extra mile. She arranged many workshops and took it on herself to make all the arrangements” said Mr Aphiwe Mazomba, Director: SIFS.
Expert knowledge: She was instrumental in the improvement of the LOGIS system over time and well respected by her peers at National Treasury, all the National Government departments and Western Cape Government as an expert in LOGIS.
Dedicated: A usual work day started at 06:00am every day and she always led by example when it came to working after hours. She was so dedicated to her job that she volunteered many hours to ensure her work goals were achieved.
Colleagues of Lenie said that they will dearly miss her enthusiasm for LOGIS and the implemented LOGIS sites. Her bubbly character will be missed by the team, especially in the workshops.
After 40 years of service, we wish Lenie a well deserved rest and happy retirement!
