Former NPA boss now at SAA

25 February, 2019 - Vusi Pikoli, former National Director of Public Prosecutions at the NPA and current advisor to the minister of state security, stepped in as Chief Risk and Compliance Officer on 1 February. The airline is hoping that this step will boost capacity as SAA implements its turnaround strategy. The overall strategic and operational responsibility for the integrated Risk Management Strategy of the carrier falls under his jurisdiction. He reports directly to the CEO.

In a statement, SAA spokesperson Tlali Tlali said the appointment was "significant in demonstrating our resolve to bringing capacity to strengthen the executive team to execute on our turnaround strategy with much urgency." The cash-strapped national carrier is implementing its turnaround strategy meant to return the airline to profit and minimise its reliance on the state.
