Telkom today announced the appointment of Jonas Bogoshi as the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of BCX, replacing Ian Russell. Bogoshi joined BCX in April. He has vast experience in leading IT organisations, including as CEO of Gijima and most recently as Country Manager of Dell EMC.
Announcing the appointment this morning, Telkom CEO Sipho Maseko said: “Since joining BCX, Jonas has brought his wealth of experience to the organisation. He has worked with Ian as part of the team to migrate the multiple entities into the six entities that make up BCX. We are pleased to have the skills and calibre of Jonas to ensure a smooth transition. Succession planning has always been one of Telkom’s priorities.”
Over the past twelve months in his role at BCX, Russell has been effective in driving efficiencies through business process reengineering and restructuring the cost base. “I have worked closely with Ian for about four years and he has been instrumental in helping us migrate system and drive efficiencies across the group. I wish to thank Ian for his hard work and dedication to Telkom Group,” says Maseko.
Bogoshi will continue to implement in line with Telkom’s growth plan for BCX. “The business will continue focusing on leading application and infrastructure service capabilities and investing in future growth areas, which include driving solutions and business outcomes for our customers,” concluded Maseko.”
Maseko said he was grateful for Russell’s contribution in setting the company up for future growth. Ian Russell will support the conclusion of certain projects until the end of August.
