JOHANNESBURG - Technology group EOH said on Friday it had appointed chief risk officer Fatima Newman as an executive director with effect from 1 August.
In a statement, EOH chairman Dr Xolani Mkhwanazi said Newman was bringing 25 years of experience as a strategic leader of risk, compliance, regulatory and governance oversight in banking and financial services, stockbroking, asset management and corporate finance.
Prior to joining EOH, Newman was employed as the executive for business risk management and compliance at mobile communications company MTN.
She joined the EOH management team and executive committee on 1 April and played a meaningful role in a forensic investigation lead by ENSAfrica.
The ENSafrica probe found evidence of serious governance failings and wrongdoing, including unsubstantiated payments, tender irregularities and other unethical business dealings.
