Gijima gets interim CEO
The JSE-listed technology group has announced that Eileen Wilton will replace outgoing CEO Jonas Bogoshi on an interim basis.
Gijima has appointed Eileen Wilton as its interim CEO. This comes after Jonas Bogoshi announced he would step down at the end of the year. Wilton will work alongside Bogoshi until the end of December.
Bogoshi has led the company for the past five years. He announced his intention to step down last month to pursue other interests.
Wilton previously held the position of chief information officer at both Old Mutual and Anglo American and joined Gijima earlier this year as its chief operating officer.
“With the full backing of the board and the chairman, I am happy to step in as interim CEO during this transition period while the search for a permanent replacement for Jonas continues,” says Wilton.
Gijima chairman Robert Gumede says the company has “confidence in Eileen Wilton’s competence and ability to continue on the current trajectory that puts the needs and wants of our customers first. She has proven herself to be an asset to the company in a short period of time.”
Gijima’s board will continue to look for suitable candidates for the CEO position both at home and abroad, it says in a statement to shareholders. — (c) 2012 NewsCentral Media
