Gert will be taking over from Nonkululeko Dlamini, who has since become CFO of Transnet.
The Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) has appointed Gert Gouws as its acting CFO for a period of three months while the process of appointing the permanent CFO is being finalised.
This follows the resignation of Nonkululeko Dlamini after she served as CFO for five years. She has since moved on to become the new CFO of Transnet.
Nonkululeko will work closely with Gert during the month of July to ensure a smooth transition.
Gert has been with the IDC for over 35 years, serving in various roles, including the role of CFO for many years.
