RESIGNATION AND APPOINTMENT OF NEW CHAIRPERSON
In the SENS announcement dated 6 September 2017, Mr Arnold Fourie’s intention to resign as Non-executive Chairperson and member of the Alviva board of directors (“the Board”) was highlighted to shareholders. After identifying a suitable successor, he has announced his resignation with immediate effect. The Board is pleased to announce that Ashley (Oshy) Tugendhaft, the current Deputy Chairperson, has been appointed as the new Non-Executive Chairperson of Alviva. Oshy has had a long-standing association with the Company having served the board in various capacities including Non-Executive Director, Deputy Chairperson and member of the Remuneration Committee (“Remco”).
It is Arnold’s view that the succession planning process that started two years ago has now been successfully implemented and that the current management team and Board are capable of taking the Alviva group to new heights.
Following his resignation from the Board, Arnold also steps down from the Remco. The Remco remains properly constituted comprising three independent Non-Executive Directors and one Non-Executive Director. The composition of the board and other committees remain compliant following the changes.
‘’The Board expresses its sincere appreciation to Arnold, the Group’s founder, former Chief Executive Officer and Non-Executive Chairperson for his role in establishing the Group and positioning it as a leader in the ICT Sector and wishes him well with his future endeavours.”
