JSE-listed Gijima on Thursday appointed COO Eileen Wilton as interim CEO, while the search continued for a replacement of outgoing CEO Jonas Bogoshi.
The information and communications technology group started a local and international search for potential candidates after Bogoshi announced his resignation last month after five years at the helm.
“I joined Gijima in 2007 with a clear target to build a solid customer-centric company following the merger with AST. I believe we have done that,” Bogoshi commented in a statement.
Wilton, who worked closely with Bogoshi to develop and implement Gijima’s service delivery and growth strategy, would, over the next three months, collaborate with the outgoing CEO to ensure a smooth transition,
“As interim CEO, I will continue to make sure we deliver high-quality service to our clients. Our commitment towards our people and the achievement of a high-performance organisation is clear, together with the drive to create an innovation culture and the establishment of home-grown intellectual property,” she said.
