Serame will serve as the CEO designate until July 2022, when he will take up the role of group CEO.

Telkom has announced the appointment of Serame Taukobong as its CEO designate with effect from 1 October. Serame will assume the role of group CEO from 1 July 2022.

Serame, who is currently the CEO of Telkom’s Consumer Business, will be taking over from exiting group CEO Sipho Maseko.
