CFO Profile: Anoj Singh | Eskom

Anoj Sing | Chief Financial Officer of Eskom until 22 January 2018.

Anoj Singh has, amongst others, worked for food retail Group Spar and Deloitte & Touche, where he was functioning as the accountant in charge of some of Deloitte’s biggest accounts. In July 2012, Singh became the CFO of Transnet. For his work here, Singh won the Public Finance Award at the CFO Awards 2014. Furtermore, he received the Strategy Execution Award at the CFO Awards 2015, as well as the Public CFO of the year award.

Anoj Singh was suspended from Eskom in September 2017 and resigned in January 2018. 

In consultation with the relevant panel of judges, CFO South Africa has suspended all awards received by Anoj until further notice. Both the panel and the organisation consider the revelations about Anoj's conduct during his tenure at Transnet (for which he received the awards) to be damaging to the stature and integrity of the CFO Awards. 

The awards can be reinstated if a court judge or official commission of inquiry clears Anoj of all charges, and can be permanently revoked if he is found guilty. This decision is a the discretion of the panel of judges and of CFO South Africa.
