Asher Bonbot (pictured), a prior member of the CFO Awards judging panel and the founder and CEO of EOH, a large technology services group, has announced that he will be leaving the JSE-listed company at the end of June. Zunaid Mayet has been appointed group CEO to replace him.

Prior to this appointment, Mayet was CEO of the EOH Industrial Technologies division, a business he started six years ago. Mayet joined EOH eight years ago, after spending many years with a global technology and engineering group, fulfilling various leadership and executive leadership roles in Europe, Asia and South Africa.
