Board of Directors


The composition of ITHUBA’s Board of Directors reflects the philosophy that there is no greater company asset than the relevant knowledge, skill and experience of its people. Each executive director brings to the table their hard-earned management credibility, proven business acumen and extensive governance experience gained by serving on the boards of several influential local and multinational companies.

The combination makes for a sound governance structure with expertise in all areas highlighted by the King Reports on good business practice in terms of Board composition that is relevant to the strategic objectives of a South African National Lottery License operator.
