Attacq’s Board acknowledges the immense value that Jackie van Niekerk has contributed to the business. “Her passion for our clients and their businesses, as well as her industry expertise, strategic thinking and work ethic makes her the ideal person to lead Attacq into the future. I am excited to be working with Jackie as we grow the company and create value for our shareholders”, said Pierre Tredoux, Chairperson of Attacq.

The new CEO position effective date of 1 May 2021 allows for a smooth transition. The three-month handover will assist in facilitating continuity in the implementation of Attacq’s strategy and vision.
