What we are looking for in our CEO
You are a South African Executive who will need to be based in Cape Town, ready to make a name for yourself and drive and grow a great business at scale.
You lead by placing your customers and your employees at the heart of everything you do.
You are a passionate and committed leader who absolutely gets how fibre and wifi connectivity to the underserved communities is a game changer for our economy and our country. A CEO who lives this passion, demonstrated through being active in your own community. Coupled with this commitment to social impact is an astute mind, with exceptional commercial savvy and a track record of success in taking a business and significantly scaling it. You don’t have to be a corporate bunny – in fact, the more agile and entrepreneurial you are, the better!
To be considered for this incredible wealth generating opportunity will require you to go through a few hoops! This is no ordinary CEO and therefore this is no ordinary process – but we do guarantee you an exceptional experience while engaging with us.
The package on offer for the CEO offers a significant upside based on performance and achievement of your KPIs, and there is no question that we are looking for a CEO that embraces this approach. We will offer a package that will be affordable and sensible to attract the right talent – but the right CEO will relish the upside of creating real wealth!
