“It is of great importance that we keep the momentum going. In fact, delivery on our mobile investment features very high on the corporate agenda. It is an appropriate time to reconfigure the Telkom Mobile top leadership team,” said Telkom Group CEO, Nombulelo Moholi.

Telkom has embarked on a recruitment process to appoint a Managing Director that will be an Executive Committee member of the Telkom Group. Until such an appointment has been made, the Telkom Mobile executive team will report to the Chief Financial Officer, Jacques Schindehütte.

Amith Maharaj will continue to head up Telkom Mobile Operations. His position has been upgraded to that of Senior Managing Executive (SME).

“This is in recognition of the sterling work he has done to bring Telkom Mobile to where it is today. I would like to congratulate Amith on a position well deserved,” said Moholi.

In his role as SME: Telkom Mobile Operations, Amith will be responsible for Mobile IT and Networks as well as Mobile Marketing, including product development, the go-to-market strategy and convergence services.

Additional announcements about appointments in this regard will be made in due course, she concluded.
