JSE-listed petrochemicals company Sasol has appointed Katharine Harper independent nonexecutive director and audit committee member, effective April 1.

Harper, who is based in the US, is currently the CFO of global logistics company BDP International. She also serves as a nonexecutive director for the American Lung Association.

Previously, she was executive VP and CFO of agricultural technology developer AgroFresh Solutions, as well as senior VP and CFO of chemicals company Tronox.
