Mr. Nick Tselentis

Tselentis was appointed AMA executive Director in 2011. Prior to that, he was in charge of Legal & Regulatory at the Consumer Goods Council of South Africa (CGCSA) and before that, was Executive Director of the Grocery Manufacturers Association (South Africa).  

Tselentis was born in Mutare, Zimbabwe. He was educated at Peterhouse, Zimbabwe and Durban High School and later went on to study at University of Natal (Howard College). He has also studied Competition Law, as well as International Trade Law, at the University of the Witawatersrand.

Passionate about localization and industry development, Tselentis was lauded for his efforts on behalf of the aerosol industry, sustainability and the environment, as well as the establishment of standards in South Africa.

Tselentis was a trusted media partner to SPRAY and the editorial team will very much miss his cheerful demeanor and knowledgeable approach.
