Thabo Phokane appointed as Servest CFO


Thabo Phokane has taken over from Peter Walsh as CFO of Servest.

Thabo Phokane has been appointed as the CFO of Servest, following the resignation of Peter Walsh. Thabo is a qualified CA (SA) with over 15 years of commercial experience, and was previously the finance director of Servest’s Security and Parking divisions.

He is excited about the work ahead of him, and says he is enthusiastic about communicating Servest’s offerings to current and prospective clients.

Thabo cites his own appointment as a demonstration of Servest’s commitment to growing its people and wants to continue to drive this culture of employee recognition through relevant training and upskilling, not only for the back office team, but the entire workforce of 25 000.

“This will enable our employees to replicate that culture to clients, thereby improving our client centricity model,” he says. 

Thabo's appointment follows on the resignation of Peter Walsh, who is taking up the role of Global CFO at ITL, a global leader in the provision of labels and tags to the apparel industry. He will split his time between London and Cape Town.

"I have had an amazing six years at Servest and am leaving on exceptionally good terms from both sides," says Peter, who has been nominated as CFO of the year in the annual CFO Awards.
