I am thrilled to be joining Naspers at such a pivotal time for the group and for South Africa and look forward to adding value to the group in realising its strategy in South Africa,” said Mahanyele-Dabengwa in a statement.

Phuthi Mahanyele-Dabengwa, the former executive chairperson at Sigma Capital, would lead its operations in South Africa. 

The position has been newly created.

Mahanyele-Dabengwa will be based in Johannesburg and report directly to the group CEO of Naspers, Bob van Dijk. 

 

 

"She will lead the group’s day-to-day business in South Africa and represent its interests in the country. She will also be responsible for Naspers’ recently announced units, Naspers Foundry and Naspers Labs, which are designed to help stimulate the South African tech sector and tackle youth unemployment, respectively," the group said in a statement.

 

Van Dijk described her as a "seasoned leader with a strong track record of achievement throughout her career".
