Her resignation follows that of non executive director and remuneration committee chairperson Mark Thomson effective from April 6.

A number of executive committee members have also resigned or left Group Five since the group reported in February that it had initiated a restructuring process.

The group announced in February that chief executive Eric Vemer would be leaving the company “within the next few weeks”, while Willie Zeelie, then an executive committee member and executive director of the engineering and construction cluster, would be leaving the company at the end of March, but would continue working with the group for a further 12 months in terms of a consultancy agreement.

Group Five on Friday thanked Ngonyama for her contribution to the group over the past three years.
