The group CFO Warren Prinsloo will support the interim CEO during this time. 

According to a statement by the company, following the successful completion of a restructuring and repositioning programme for Jasco Electronics and its subsidiaries, Mark felt it was time to pursue his own new interests after 12 years of service with the group. “Under his leadership, significant progress was made in driving to resolution a number of complex matters the company faced,” the statement read.
