Telkom has announced the appointment of Nombulelo (Pinky) Moholi, currently MD of Telkom SA, as its new CEO. She will take up her new position on 1 April.
Although current CEO Jeffrey Hedberg’s contract expires on 31 March, the board has asked him to remain in an advisory capacity until its annual results in June.
Moholi has been involved in the ICT industry for 23 years, with 15 of those in executive management.
After a formative career as an engineer at GEC and Siemens, she joined Telkom in 1994 and remained at the company for the next 11 years. During this time, she was promoted to several senior positions including group executive: regulatory affairs, managing executive: international & wholesale business, and chief sales & marketing officer. She was also a member of the Telkom Executive Committee (Exco).
Moholi left Telkom in 2005 to join the Nedbank Group, where she served as the chief strategy & corporate affairs officer and as a member of the Executive Committee for just over three years.
She rejoined Telkom as the MD of Telkom South Africa in May 2009.
