Harith General Partners has announced Sipho Makhubela as its Chief Executive Officer with effect from September 1, 2020. Sipho Makhubela’s appointment follows Tshepo Mahloele’s (former CEO) request to step aside as Harith’s CEO earlier this year after 14 years of successfully developing signature infrastructure projects on the African continent.
“I would like to thank the Board of Harith for its leadership and guidance throughout this amazing journey,” said Mahloele.
“I am grateful for this opportunity and for the trust that the Board, investors and broader stakeholders placed in me during my tenure as CEO. I want to thank my team for being such professionals and for relentlessly and effectively executing our mandate on behalf of our investors. As my role within Harith changes, I will continue to contribute, albeit in a different capacity, to our mission of changing the continent for the better through the development and financing of world-class infrastructure projects,” he added.
Makhubela commended Tshepo saying “Tshepo, you are an inspiration to all of us at Harith and I look forward to working with you in your new role. Your counsel and wisdom will continue to be invaluable as we take this leading infrastructure investor forward. Through your talent and relentless drive, you have built a recognized African investment brand with strong governance processes, a track record of signature infrastructure projects on the continent and a team of admired investment specialists.”
“I am glad that as Harith we are not losing Tshepo and we will still have the opportunity to tap into his wisdom and leadership albeit with him playing a different role”, added Moleketi.
Prior to his appointment, Makhubela was Harith’s managing director of investments.
