Zwelithini Vilakazi appointed as BCX new CFO

Zwelithini Vilakazi has been appointed as CFO of BCX after the resignation of Refilwe Nkabinde.

Zwelithini Vilakazi will be taking the role as chief financial officer of BCX after the resignation of Refilwe Nkabinde.

Zwelithini is an experienced group executive with a demonstrated history of working in the telecommunications and banking industry. Prior to his new appointment, Zwelithini was with Telkom, which acquired BCX in 2014, for more than three years, serving in several executive positions. Before that, he spent five years with Barclays Africa Group Ltd in various finance and accounting roles. 

Refilwe has been with BCX since 2016 and has served as chief of finance and shared services. Her diligence and financial savvy has seen her rise through the ranks at Brandhouse Beverages, starting out as financial controller and completing her tenure as finance and strategy director, before joining BCX. She leaves at the end of August. 

Her departure follows the resignations of Mike Buttner, COO, and Ian Russell, CEO, both in June.
