Africa’s leading television content provider, pay channel M-Net, has appointed Nkateko Mabaso as Director for Local Interest Channels in South Africa.
Mabaso will succeed Yolisa Phahle – who has just been named M-Net’s CEO for South Africa – on 1 April.
Patricia van Rooyen, CEO of M-Net Sub-Saharan Africa, said Mabaso joined M-Net in 2010 as Marketing Manager for Vuzu and Channel O.
She commented: “He made a great contribution to the successful launch of the acclaimed Mzansi Magic channel and his role soon evolved into that of the Head of Marketing and Public Relations for Local Interest. In his new position, reporting to Phahle, Nkateko will be a key leader of the South African team responsible for ensuring that M-Net delivers only the most relevant, most compelling content.’
Mabaso successfully completed M-Net’s leadership programme, Media Leaders @ Work, in 2012.
