Greg Wilson, CEO of Reflex Solutions, has announced that he will step down as CEO of the company to take up the positions of executive chair of the Reflex Solutions board of directors as well as the group CEO position of Myriad Capital.
Myriad is the majority shareholder of Reflex and is also the vehicle that holds various other ICT assets such as Automation Exchange and Open Fibre.
Wilson will take up the position as executive chairman of Reflex as of 1 June 2021. He believes this will allow him to assist with Reflex’s continued growth from the investments made by Myriad and support the company with implementing the group growth strategy. The group strategy allows for all the businesses to benefit when one business within the group grows.
“We are fortunate that our diverse go-to-market strategy has put the company in a position to weather the storm and continue to grow,” says Wilson. “Reflex is in an extremely stable position and at the same time continues to experience sustained growth that consistently outperforms our peers and the market.”
His new roles and responsibilities will be to focus on ensuring that the group strategy is implemented; ensuring the group is ready to maximise on technology and commercial opportunities in the market, looking at strategic acquisitions to the group where it supports the strategy in owning the value chain.
“I will be available as a mentor to the business and ensure that we have relevant and meaningful offerings to clients, whilst ensuring our investors are engaged and happy,” he adds.
Paul Divall has been appointed as the new CEO of Reflex Solutions with effect from 1 June 2021.
Divall previously sat on the Reflex board as a Jasco representative and supported the business strategy during this time.
Says Wilson: “There is no doubt in my mind that he [Divall] exceeds our requirements and will lead Reflex into the next era.”
Divall is an Electronic Engineer by profession and completed his MBA with distinction. He has experience in both the ICT carrier and enterprise markets. He has a background in mobile technologies having previously worked in senior management positions for Siemens and Nokia.
“I am extremely excited about this opportunity and really motivated to lead Reflex Solutions as it evolves into something even bigger and more significant,” Divall says. “I am confident that my technical and business skills gained over my 20 year career in various business development and leadership roles in conjunction with my extensive network will add significant value to Reflex Solutions’ operations. I have a philosophy of making a positive difference in everything I do and I believe this position at Reflex Solutions will allow me to do just that.”
Divall will be supported by the existing Reflex management team of chief financial officer David Robinson, chief technology officer Pieter van Zyl and chief sales officer Darrel Kirby.
