Ms Ouma Rasethaba appointed Telkom Chief Risk Officer
Telkom today announced the appointment of Ms Ouma Rasethaba as Chief Risk
Officer with immediate effect. Ms Rasethaba, who has been with Telkom since
2006, has previously held the position of Chief of Regulatory and Corporate
Affairs. The appointment completes the EXCO structure under Group CEO,
Mr Sipho Maseko.
"Ms Rasethaba has played a valuable role at Telkom over the years, first
as Group Executive for Regulatory and Public Policy and later as Chief
of Corporate Governance. Hers was not always an easy task, especially when
one considers the complexity of the legal matters Telkom has had to deal
with, as well as the fluidity of the regulatory environment," says Mr Maseko.
As Chief Risk Officer, Ms Rasethaba will be responsible for the overall
control of Telkom’s risk management processes – the identification, assessment
and response to those risks that influence Telkom achieving its objectives.
According to Mr Maseko, she will also, as she's done in the past, lead
the team from Group Legal Services, which includes managing the implementation
of good Corporate Governance principles. "Ms Rasethaba and her team have
always done a sterling job, and I know this will continue to be the case
in her new role," says Mr Maseko.
Says Ms Rasethaba: "I’m honoured by the confidence placed in my ability
and look forward to finding workable solutions to the challenges we face."
