Attacq's new CEO, Jackie van Niekerk.
Attacq's new CEO, Jackie van Niekerk.

The announcement that Jackie van Niekerk would be taking the reins at Attacq when Melt Hamman, Attacq’s former CEO, stepped down, was not that unexpected.

Though young by CEO standards, Van Niekerk brings a wealth of knowledge stemming from over 15 years’ experience in the real estate industry in various positions, including CEO of Pivotal Property Fund. As significant is her four-year stint as Attacq’s COO.

That brings a thorough understanding of the business and its strategy. But Van Niekerk is taking the reins at a particularly difficult time. A challenged economy coupled with a pandemic has altered the property environment. Did she consider declining the position? finweek asked.
