Mondi Joint Chairman
Cyril Ramaphosa, joint chairman of Mondi Limited and Mondi plc, will be stepping down at the conclusion of the Annual General Meetings on 3 May 2013.
Following his election as deputy president of South Africa's ruling African National Congress in December 2012, Cyril has reviewed his business commitments and has now advised Mondi that he wishes to resign from his positions as joint chairman and as a non-executive director at the Annual General Meetings of Mondi Limited and Mondi plc on 3 May 2013.
Anne Quinn, senior independent director, supported by the DLC nominations committee, will immediately start the process of seeking a successor to Cyril.
David Williams, joint chairman, said: `We would like to thank Cyril for his significant contribution to the Mondi Group. He has helped guide Mondi through its initial years of listing and played an important role in providing constructive counsel particularly on issues specific to the South African business environment.'
