Maria Ramos to lead Eskom unbundling. Or not. But definitely maybe
Maria Ramos, the former Absa CEO, is in the running to lead the unbundling of Eskom as “Chief Reorganisation Officer” (CRO), according to a Sunday Times report.
Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan, however, says he is not aware that Ramos is a possible candidate for the post.
White asked Theobald about the rumours and Ramos’ track record.
