SuperSport CEO Imtiaz Patel will succeed Nolo Letele as group CEO of pay-TV broadcaster MultiChoice on 1 October. Letele, who was due to retire later this year, has been named as executive chairman of MultiChoice SA.
Announcing the changes on Thursday, a MultiChoice spokesman says the board had agreed on an executive chairmanship to “meet the challenges faced by the underlying entities”.
“Given Letele’s more than 20 years of experience in pay TV, his knowledge of the business will stand him in good stead to fulfil this role,” the company says.
Current chairman Mandla Langa — a former chairman of the Independent Communications Authority of SA — is retiring from the board, though he will continue with the company as a senior adviser.
Khulu Sibiya, already a director of MultiChoice SA, has been appointed as its lead director. — Staff reporter, TechCentral
