Naspers has announced that CEO of the group’s pay-TV segment, Eben Greyling, has stepped down from his position, “to take a break and pursue new interests” after more than 18 years with the company.
“Eben has been instrumental in building the group’s successful pay-TV businesses across the continent. Under his leadership over the last five years the subscriber base and turnover of the pay-TV businesses more than doubled,” Naspers said in a statement.
Jim Volkwyn, previous head of the group’s pay-TV segment, will take over the reins from 1 April 2014, the media and internet group said.
Group chief executive Koos Bekker also steps down in April after 17 years at Naspers and will be replaced by e-commerce chief Bob van Dijk.
