Tessara appoints Jaco Smit as CEO

Cape Town, South Africa, 1 November 2019. Tessara (PTY) LTD, the producer of Uvasys, announced that they have appointed Jaco Smit as the new CEO.

Mr. Smit most recently served for three years as Managing Director of Ascendis Pharma, a South African based generic pharmaceuticals company. Prior to this, Jaco was with Sanofi Pasteur for 20 years, first based in the USA, then France and finally in South Africa, where he was General Manager of the vaccines business. He is no stranger to Cape Town, being born and raised in South Africa, he completed his studies and career in the USA. Now he closes the circle and returns to the Cape to guide and lead Tessara on its journey of branching into various product development areas.

Jaco brings a wealth of international experience and a strong focus to new product development, both of which we believe will be invaluable in helping to take Tessara forward.

I am excited to join Tessara at this point in its evolution, with an expanding portfolio of innovative products and new markets. I look forward to contributing to Tessara’s success story.

Jaco Smit

We wish Jaco all the best and welcome him to the Tessara team.
