The Eskom Board has on Friday appointed Sean Maritz as the interim Group Chief Executive with immediate effect, the Power Utility said on Sunday.
Maritz replaced Johnny Dladla.
Dladla will resume his role as the Chief Executive Officer of Eskom Rotek Industries.
Dladla has occupied the role of Interim Group Chief Executive since June 2017.
Eskom said the decision to rotate the interim Chief Executive position was taken with the approval of the shareholder to, inter alia, give exposure to another member of the executive team without compromising organisational stability.
The Eskom Board said it has decided to rotate current executives in this role to ensure exposure.
“We have noted with concern recent media reports with unsubstantiated allegations against Maritz,” said Eskom
The Power Utility pleaded with those against the decision to allow Maritz to be given a chance to lead Eskom.
“In an effort to embed organisational stability, it is imperative that the role of Eskom’s Group Chief Executive be permanently filled.
The recruitment process will begin in due course,” said Eskom.
“We thank Dladla for the work well done and to wish Maritz all the best in this new role,” added Eskom.
