This interim appointment follows the recent resignation of Director and current CEO, Morné Wilken, who will be taking up a position as CEO of MAS Real Estate Inc., of which Attacq is the major shareholder. Attacq’s Board of Directors has already commenced with the process of identifying and recruiting a new CEO.

Hamman joined Attacq from the FirstRand Group during July 2013 prior to Attacq’s listing on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.  Over the last four years he worked closely alongside the current CEO in establishing and positioning the company and will continue to drive Attacq’s ongoing business strategy, together with the current leadership team.

Announcing the appointment of Melt Hamman as the interim CEO, Pierre Tredoux, Chairman of the Attacq Board commented: “With our leadership team, collective business expertise and industry knowledge, we remain focused on the company’s strategic goals and the transition to convert to a REIT by the end of the 2018 financial year.  We are confident that Attacq is well placed to continue to create value for its shareholders as the company progresses on its journey to becoming a REIT, and have full confidence in Melt’s abilities to deliver on this in the interim.”

He thanked Morné for the pivotal role he played in the success of the business and in particular, the development of the Waterfall precinct.  “The Board appreciates Morné’s contribution and wishes him all the best in his future endeavours,” Tredoux said.
