Ian van Niekerk new CFO, Andrew Matseke new CEO, of Broadband Infraco

A Cabinet statement recently announced the appointment of two new executives to Broadband Infraco: Ian van Niekerk as CFO and Andrew Matseke (pictured) as CEO.

Matseke replaces Puleng Kwele as CEO - Kwele's five-year contract ended in May, and the state-owned broadband company has been searching for a replacement since February. Matseke will also hold a five-year contract; expiring 30 August 2022, though his appointment is still subject to verification of qualifications and the relevant clearance.

Kwele will stay on at the entity until 30 November, her fixed-term contract having been extended by three months.
