Former Independent Communications of Authority of SA (Icasa) chairman Paris Mashile has been appointed as a nonexecutive director of state-owned broadcasting signal distributor Sentech.
Cabinet ratified his appointment at its regular meeting last week. Cabinet spokesman Jimmy Manyi made the announcement on Tuesday. Mashile is one of three new directors on the Sentech board.
Mashile left Icasa last year after a five-year stint as chairman of the authority. In August, he was appointed as CEO of Vunani Electronic Communications, the consulting arm of AltX-listed Vunani Limited.
At the same time, Logan Naidoo, a quantity surveyor with experience on various companies’ boards, has been appointed as Sentech’s nonexecutive chairman, replacing Quraysh Patel who stepped down late last year.
Sindi Mabaso-Koyana, a former Transnet chief financial officer, has been named as a nonexecutive director of the parastatal. Mabaso-Koyana, who is finance chief at the Passenger Rail Agency of SA, also serves on the boards of Toyota and the SA National Roads Agency.
The nonexecutive directorships are for a period of three years. — Staff reporter, TechCentral
