Open-access fibre telecommunications player Dark Fibre Africa has appointed Cilliers Steyn as chief financial officer and named Thinus Mulder as the new permanent CEO of the company.
Steyn moves to DFA from his position as CEO of Community Investment Ventures Holdings, of which DFA is a subsidiary, and will be taking the reins from Mulder, who is stepping down as finance chief to take over as CEO.
“Steyn has a keen understanding of DFA, having been with Community Investment Ventures Holdings, our holding company, for 17 years,” said Mulder in a statement.
The appointments come after Pieter Uys, the former CEO of Vodacom, was named as chairman of the DFA board earlier this year.
In March, Gustav Smit, DFA’s founding CEO, announced he intended to step down at the end of June after nine years at the helm. — (c) 2016 NewsCentral Media
