Eskom Group unveiled its new CEO, Dan Marokane, expressing enthusiasm for the pivotal role he is set to play in the organization’s future. The appointment comes after a prolonged period of vacancy following the departure of former CEO Andre De Ruyter earlier this year.

Marokane, who brings a wealth of experience from his previous roles within the group executives and group capital departments at the state power utility, expressed his gratitude for the honor bestowed upon him. “It’s an honor to be chosen to lead Eskom at this critical juncture in its history,” remarked Marokane in a statement released by Eskom.

Anticipating collaboration with the leadership team, Eskom Board, shareholders, and other key stakeholders, Marokane outlined his commitment to accelerating the implementation of the Generation Recovery Plan. His vision also extends to the creation of transmission capacity and addressing other critical priorities essential for charting a path toward a sustainable future for Eskom.

Minister Pravin Gordhan conveyed his confidence in Marokane’s abilities, as expressed by his spokesperson, Ellis Mnyandu: “Minister Gordhan believes Mr. Marokane has the drive to energetically tackle the challenges confronting Eskom. Mr. Marokane has experience working in distressed organizations with visible and pressurized turnaround mandates.”

Marokane is scheduled to assume his new position before the end of March 2024, marking a new chapter in Eskom’s journey under his leadership. As Eskom looks ahead, the appointment of Marokane signals a commitment to addressing challenges and steering the organization toward a sustainable and resilient future.
