Telkom has recently announced that Marius Mostert, Thami Msimango and Stafford Augustine have are all leaving the company. These departures form part of the Voluntary Severance and Voluntary Early Retirement process announced by Telkom in April.
“Marius Mostert, Managing Executive for our Network Infrastructure Provisioning division is amongst the colleagues who have applied for early retirement and his application has been approved by the Company,” Telkom said in a recent internal mail to its staff.
Telkom further announced that as a consequence of Mostert’s early retirement, there are structural changes and some “associated lateral moves” in the Wholesale and Networks division which will come into effect on 1 July 2010.
- Alphonzo Samuels is appointed to the Managing Executive, Network Infrastructure Provisioning (NIP) position.
- Casper Kondo Chihaka is appointed to the Managing Executive, Wholesale Services (WS) position.
- Theo Hess is appointed to the Managing Executive, Network Field Operations (NFO) position. Theo is currently heading up Telkom’s Business Optimisation office. “We will cease to operate the Business Optimisation office as a stand-alone Managing Executive portfolio, thus operating with one less Managing Executive position in Wholesale & Networks,” Telkom said.
- Sammy Gumbe will continue as Managing Executive, Information Technology Systems (ITS).
- Leisel Ramjoo will continue, in an acting capacity, in the Managing Executive Network Core Operations (NCO) position.
Telkom said that it is essentially a reshuffling of executives to fill the gap left by Mostert, and that no new appointments have been made.
