JSE-listed technology company Jasco has promoted Warren Prinsloo to the position of CEO.
He will replace the interim CEO, Pete da Silva.
As committed to the market, Da Silva stepped in as interim CEO to ensure stability to the group following the resignation of the previous CEO nine months ago, the company said.
Da Silva will resume his role as alternate non-executive director to the Deputy Chairman.
Prinsloo, who has been the company’s group Chief Financial Officer (CFO) for the last 15 years, will takeover as CEO with effect from 1 March 2021. He is also currently filling the role of Company Secretary. Jasco said it has engaged with external service providers in this
regard and will announce the appointment of the new Company Secretary in due course.
Liska Prigge, a former divisional Financial Director within Jasco ICT-Enterprise, will take over from Warren as CFO with effect from 1 March 2021.
Prigge is a CA(SA) who completed her articles at Ernst & Young in 2005 and was promoted to a managerial position in 2006. She joined Jasco as the Group Finance Executive in July 2007 where she worked closely with the CFO, before being promoted to the position of the divisional Financial Director in 2017.
“The Board congratulates Warren and Liska and is confident that they have the required blend of experience, skills and expertise to deliver on the group’s business plan and strategic objectives to ensure the group’s continuity and success,” the company said.
“The Board also thanks Pete for stepping in during the height of the COVID-19 crisis in 2020, for leading the management team as the government’s lockdown levels eased, and for steering the group to stability.”
