Ash Resources, South Africa’s leading manufacturer and supplier of fly ash products, has appointed Mayibongwe Geqeza as its new Financial Manager and member of the company’s Exco, with effect from 1 December 2014. He takes over from Debbie Fox who, after nine years with Ash Resources, has returned to Lafarge South Africa on a special IT project.

Geqeza has been with Lafarge Industries South Africa for over six years, starting as an Internal Auditor and, for the last three and a half years, as Financial Accountant.

He is a Chartered Accountant, obtaining his B Com Honours, Commerce (Accounting) from the University of Natal. “I am excited at this opportunity to spread my wings in the Lafarge Group and take on more responsibility,” Geqeza says.

Married with three young sons, Geqeza is a lover of a wide range of sports: these days it is mainly as a supporter of Kaizer Chiefs, the Stormers, and the Warriors!
