Bek is back, read all about it


Koos Bekker has rejoined Naspers. 

Bekker left Naspers in February 2014 after 17 years of overseeing growth that has transformed the publisher into an emerging-markets giant. He was succeeded by Bob van Dijk.

At the time, the company said Koos would stand down from the [DATA NPN:Naspers] board for a year. He intended to travel and research where the group’s next spurt of growth may come from.


On Monday, Naspers also announced the retirement of Ton Vosloo, who stepped down as non-executive chair, and will be succeeded by Koos.

The company also said that independent non-executive directors Messrs Boetie van Zyl and Yuanhe Ma, have retired from the board.
