CHANGES TO THE BOARD AND ITS COMMITTEES – RETIREMENT OF SINDI ZILWA AS NON-EXECUTIVE
DIRECTOR AND CHAIR OF THE ASPEN SOCIAL & ETHICS COMMITTEE / APPOINTMENT OF BEN KRUGER AS
CHAIR OF THE ASPEN SOCIAL & ETHICS COMMITTEE
In accordance with paragraph 3.59 of the Listings Requirements of the JSE Limited, the Aspen Board of
Directors (“the Board”) confirms that Ms Sindi Zilwa has confirmed that she will not make herself available
for re-election as director at the Company’s next annual general meeting (AGM) and, as a result, retire as a
director with effect from 9 December 2021. The Board wishes to express its sincere appreciation to Ms
Zilwa for her dedicated service to Aspen as an independent non-executive director since her appointment
to this role in 2006. During this time, she has also served the Group diligently and with distinction as the
chair of its Social & Ethics Committee since its inception in 2012, and as member of its Audit & Risk
Committee, from which she stepped down in October 2020.
The Board is pleased to confirm that Mr Ben Kruger, a current independent non-executive director of
Aspen, will succeed Ms Zilwa as chair of the Social & Ethics Committee, with effect from 9 December 2021.
Referring to Ms Zilwa’s retirement, Aspen Holdings chair, Mr Kuseni Dlamini, said, "The Board wishes to
express its deep gratitude to Sindi, who has made an immense and lasting contribution to the Aspen Group
over the last 15 years. While the Board is sad to bid farewell to her at the AGM, we are pleased to have
someone of Ben’s calibre to succeed Sindi as the chair of the Group’s Social & Ethics Committee."
