Dan Marokane assumes role as Eskom Group Chief Executive

Friday, 01 March 2024: The Board is pleased to announce the arrival of Eskom Group Chief Executive, Dan Marokane, who officially assumes his role today. He re-joins Eskom at a time when the organisation faces an existential challenge and is undergoing significant changes that require hands-on, bold, and decisive leadership.

Eskom Board Chairman Mteto Nyati expressed confidence in Marokane’ s abilities, as well as in the leadership and staff of Eskom, emphasising their collective commitment to turning the organisation around.

“We expect Dan and his leadership team to accomplish at least two critical tasks. First, they must address the current business challenges. Loadshedding must become a thing of the past. Second, they need to reposition and restructure Eskom to enable growth and sustainability,” said Nyati.

As Marokane takes the helm, the Eskom Board has asked him to prioritise several key areas in the first 100 days and these are:

  1. Assessing the Generation Operational Recovery Plan
  2. Reviewing Eskom’s unbundling plans
  3. Engaging with internal and external stakeholders

These first 100 days are crucial for helping him gain necessary insights about Eskom and the industry. He should be in a position to engage with the media at the end of this critical period.

“Dan has the full support of the Eskom Board. Eskom employees are excited to welcome him back into the organisation. We invite all South Africans to rally behind him as he steers Eskom toward stability, reliability and sustainability,” concluded Nyati.
