I was mindful to look beyond the headlines and saw the tremendous value, technology innovation and entrepreneurial spirit upon which EOH was built. I found a business with some of the best minds and solutions in the technology industry, with exceptional potential to drive progress and service delivery across the African continent.
I found a new executive team, under the leadership of Stephen van Coller, which was committed to fixing the past and was putting in place the building blocks of the EOH of the future. This included the daunting task of leading an investigation in the midst of high stakeholder scrutiny.
From the very beginning, I was drawn to its uncompromising commitment to transparency and zero tolerance for corruption as a Board and Executive Committee (‘EXCO’). I believe that this will be one of the defining factors in rebuilding our reputation as Africa’s leading technology business.
There is no doubt that this past year will stand out as one of the most transformative in the history of EOH.
