Plenty of new blood at the top of SA’s top companies

Have been updating databases during this quiet period. The full list of CEOs of the JSE’s Top 100 Companies has just been published on Biznews. One of the more interesting results is how much new blood is coursing through JSE-listed companies. In the past year, 17 of the SA market’s top 100 Companies brought in new CEOs.

All of the new leaders are men, with Barclays Africa [JSE:BGA]’s Maria Ramos and JSE Limited’s Nicky Newton-King the only female CEOs among the Top 100. Average age of the newcomers is 47, pulled higher by 64 year old Mark Lamberti, surprise successor to Hubert Brodie at Imperial [JSE:IPL].

The youngest of the group. by two years, is Naspers [JSE:NPN]’s new CEO Bob van Dijk (41). On the downside, there is clearly room for improvement in succession planning –  six of the 17 were recruited from outside the business.
