Multichoice Connected Video CEO - Mr Niclas Ekdahl - Quits!
Reports reaching BMA is saying that after just two years in the post, Niclas Ekdahl, CEO of Multichoice connected video division has resigned, and will be leaving his position, effective immediately. "Personal interests" was the main reason given for Mr Ekdahl's calling it quits with Multichoice.
It is the belief if some industry watchers that a high-ranking departure of this type seems irregular, giving that Multichoice is itself in the middle of the launching of some significant internet-connected streaming services such as the announced "DStv dishless" and the "DStv Explora."
The current CEO of general entertainment business unit, Ms Yolisa Phahle, will assume responsibilities for the connected video division until a suitable replacement is found.
Joe Heshu, group corporate affairs executive at Multichoice, said that the company is appreciative of Nicklas' contribution in his time at the helm of Connected Video and wishes him well in future endeavours. Mr Heshu concluded that the work and plans of the Connected Video business unit would continue regardless.
