Johannesburg - Margaret-Ann Diedricks has been appointed director general (DG) in Gauteng, Premier Nomvula Mokonyane said on Thursday.

Mokonyane said Diedricks had proved herself in the high-level positions she had held in various spheres of government, the legislature, and academia.

"We have already passed the halfway mark of our term of office. It was critical that we found someone who would be able to hit the ground running," Mokonyane said in a statement.

Diedricks holds a master's degree in psychology, and an advanced executive programme certificate from Unisa. She replaces Nosizwe Nokwe-Macamo, who left the Gauteng provincial government at the end of March.

Diedricks, who is the current Ekurhuleni metro chief operating officer and former community safety head of department, has 15 years' experience in the public service, dating back to her period as research manager for the Gauteng legislature in 1997.

"I believe I have developed a wide array of management, administrative and financial management skills through the different positions that I have held over the years that will help me add tangible value to the work of the office of the premier," Diedricks said about her appointment.

She would assume her duties at the beginning of September.
