New CFO for DAWN

New CFO for DAWN

Chris Booyens (60) has been appointed the DAWN Group’s chief financial officer (CFO) and financial director, effective 1 May 2017.

This follows the recent appointment of Edwin Hewitt to the position of chief executive officer from 1 April 2017.

Booyens is the former group financial director of Iliad Africa and Harmony Gold Mining. He held various financial executive roles in Tiger Brands subsidiaries and was a director at The Cold Chain, Enterprise Foods and Adcock Ingram Pharmaceuticals. He is a qualified chartered accountant.

Hewitt has highlighted short-term, continued stabilisation and a longer-term rebuilding plan as his priorities for the company.

He says the DAWN Group’s board of directors foresees Booyens’s contribution to these objectives as significant, especially considering his experience in the building materials sector, listed environments and in turnaround strategies.
