EOH has announced the appointment of Marialet Greeff as interim group CFO following Megan Pydigadu’s resignation, as well as CEO Stephen van Coller’s intentions to retire.
Following the resignation of group CFO Megan Pydigadu, EOH has appointed Marialet Greeff as interim group CFO.
Marialet has been with EOH since 2019, when she joined as the executive head of tax. In 2021, she was appointed as the executive of regulatory reporting, and in February 2023 she became the executive of treasury and regulatory finance.
According to the company, she has played an integral role in both the finance function and the restructuring and turnaround process of EOH.
Prior to joining EOH, Marialet was a senior manager of tax and a senior financial controller at Cell C. Before that she was a financial manager at Sebata Holdings, after she completed her articles at PwC in 2008.
EOH has also announced that its CEO, Stephen van Coller, will step down from his role in March 2024. He has agreed to extend his initial five-year contract for another six months, but has asked the board not to consider an extension beyond 31 March 2024, at which time he will officially retire.
“It has been quite a journey, and not what I expected when I accepted the CEO role in 2018. Nevertheless, I am immensely proud of what we have achieved as a team. EOH today is a sustainable company, which lies at the heart of South Africa’s ICT ecosystem and plays an important role in everyone’s lives,” Stephen said in a statement.
“It has great potential both locally and internationally, and now is an appropriate time to hand over to new leadership to guide the company through this next chapter,” he concluded.
