PSL chairman, Irvin Khoza, says that he was excited to announce the league’s new CEO, Brand de Villiers, saying that his appointment was a unanimous decision.
De Villiers, the soon to become former chairman of SAIL, will begin his duties with the PSL on July 2, taking over from Cambridge Mokonyane who has held the role of acting CEO for a number of months.
When PSL chairman, Khoza, was asked about the length of contract that De Villiers had been given, Khoza told the media, “Our contracts are a minimum of three years, hopefully he’ll be here for even longer than that. We are looking for continuity and we hope that when he’s settled down he’ll be able to understand the requirements of the league.”
Meanwhile, the Orlando Pirates boss said that the decision to appoint De Villiers was one supported by every club boss in the league.
He said, “We’re fortunate that, for the first time in the history of the league, we’ve announced a CEO that all the club chairmen agree with. Fortunately most of them have dealt with him, we were very excited to announce him.”
