Following the appointment of Nosiphiwo, Nic Morris will step down as CEO of the Company and as an Executive Director of the Board, effective 17 July 2017, but will remain employed by Texton Property Investments Proprietary Limited until 30 August 2017 to facilitate a smooth transition for the new CEO.   

The Company has identified a short list of suitable Financial Director candidates, who are currently in a comprehensive selection and recruitment process, with the intention of appointing a candidate in the near future.   

In addition, the following changes have been made to the Board: - the appointment of Shaheeda Mia, CA(SA), as an Independent Non-Executive Director and member of the Audit and Risk Committee (effective 13 July 2017); and  - Patrick Ntshalintshali remains as a Board member, but has resigned as a member of the Audit and Risk Committee (effective 13 July 2017). 

Post the above appointments, the Board will be positioned to comply with the recommendations of King IV reflecting diversity in both gender and race.  

The Chairman and the Board wish to congratulate Nosiphiwo and Shaheeda on their respective appointments and thank Nic for his contribution to the Board and the Company
