Kagiso Media Limited Appoints Omar Essack as Group Deputy CEO

Kagiso Media Limited appointed Omar Essackas as a Deputy Group Chief Executive Officer. Essack has vast and varied experience within South Africa's media landscape. While at East Coast Radio he led the station's strategy to make it the first radio station in South Africa to appeal to audiences across the racial spectrum. He has also been instrumental in helping turn around Gagasi and Heart FM from struggling businesses to viable radio stations. Their audiences grew within one year to 18 months of Kagiso Media's involvement. Reporting directly to Kagiso Media Limited's Deputy Group CEO will be the CE Radio: Nick Grubb, CE Channels (to be appointed) and CE Content (to be appointed). He will also have Urban Brew Studios in his portfolio. Essack will also provide business direction and guidance to the Chief Innovation Officer, Vincent Maher. The Deputy CEO will also be the automatic stand in for the CEO whenever the CEO is not available and will also automatically be included in all group forums and structures.
