CAPE TOWN – Technology services provider EOH Holdings has announced that it has appointed Megan Pydigadu as its new group financial director.

This comes after the previous financial director for the group John King resigned on the 3rd of October. 

Stephen van Coller, chief executive of EOH Holdings, said in a statement: “Megan joins EOH after a career spanning articles at Deloitte in both Johannesburg and Boston, senior financial positions at De Beers and Bateman and most recently she was chief financial officer for Mix Telematics, a JSE- and New York-listed company, a position she held for over six years.

“I am really pleased to have secured the services of Megan at a time when we are not only rebuilding EOH as a much better and stable IT company but are actively pursuing organic growth as we entrench our position as Africa’s largest technology company."
