Google on Monday announced that it has appointed Mzamo Masito as its chief marketing officer for Sub-Saharan Africa. Masito joins Google from Vodacom, where he held a senior position. He has an MBA from the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS) as well as a post-graduate diploma from UCT.
MTN executive for group corporate affairs, Chris Maroleng, has left the telco, with reports suggesting he will soon be announced as the new COO of the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC). This following a report by the Sunday World which said Maroleng had been appointed to the SABC's COO position, a job previously held by Hlaudi Motsoeneng who was fired last June.
Maroleng told ITWeb he was unable to comment on the accuracy of the report, saying only the SABC board could comment on appointments.
