Mustek has announced the appointment of Shabana Aboo Baker Ebrahim as its new group financial director.

“I am humbled about my appointment and feel hugely fortunate to have been given this amazing and dream come true opportunity. It is a huge privilege that the Mustek board has seen in me the qualities needed to help take Mustek forward,” she says.

Although, with any new role there is some element of nervousness, Shabana is looking forward to working with and learning from fellow directors and a management team “that are extremely knowledgeable and experienced. David Kan has left us with an exceptional legacy which I aim to, with the board, look after and take to new heights”

Shabana takes over from Neels Coetzee, who has been appointed as the divisional managing director for the group’s operating company. She will also assist Hein Engelbrecht, who was appointed as the group’s CEO at the beginning of July.

Shabana is a registered chartered accountant and holds a master’s in taxation. She joined the group in 2020 as group financial manager and had experience with the group before joining as the audit manager on the Deloitte audit team from 2016 to 2019, while she was an associate director for the audit firm.
