CFO Fikile Mhlontlo has now joined Delta Property Fund, after helping SAA on its turnaround journey.
Delta Property Fund has announced the appointment of Fikile Mhlontlo as its new CFO, starting today (18 July).
Previously, Fikile served as the interim CFO of South African Airways (SAA) from April 2021, where he was tasked with assisting in bringing SAA out of insolvency. “I led the finance team during this tough transition, helping to drive the financial recovery and sustainability of the airline,” he said.
Fikile thanked the SAA team for their commitment and support during his time in the role, “I look forward to seeing the oldest airline, which has been through a difficult time, grow from strength to strength.”
He took a short break after his term ended on 31 May 2023, during which he had been presented with four new opportunities.
“There is no perfect explanation for why I chose Delta – it’s philosophical. It’s a gut feeling about where I felt I would be able to contribute the most. I look forward to joining the fund.”
Fikile explains that he is looking forward to working with his new team. “I am very inclusive and believe that the only way to achieve your objectives is through your teams. It’s my job to guide and empower them.”
