Telkom’s current CEO, Nombulelo Moholi, announced her resignation in November 2012 and will leave the company in April 2013.
Industry rumours suggest that Maseko is being considered for the top job at Telkom. Maseko’s telecoms experience and his tenure as Chief Executive Officer of BP Southern Africa makes him a logical candidate to consider.
However, Maseko denied that he is in discussions with Telkom to take over from Moholi. Maseko told MyBroadband that he has not been in contact with Telkom, and that he is honouring his restraint of trade with Vodacom.
No specific candidates under consideration: Telkom
Telkom said that its board has embarked on a process to identify and appoint a suitable candidate to take over from Moholi as Telkom group CEO.
“At this stage there are no specific candidates under consideration. The board has not started the interview process as yet and as such it is inappropriate to comment on individuals and speculate whether they have applied or not,” Telkom said.
“Furthermore, the Telkom board is yet to meet to discuss any shortlisting,” Telkom added.
