Executive Eben Greyling exits MultiChoice


Eben Greyling, long-term MultiChoice and Naspers executive, has left his position with immediate effect.

Previous head of the group’s pay-television segment, Jim Volkwyn, took over from Greyling on 1 April.

Greyling, who had been with Naspers for more than 18 years in various roles, is reportedly taking a break and wants to pursue new interests. He was appointed to head up pay-television operations in 2009.

Naspers said in a short statement sent to shareholders: “Eben has been instrumental in building the group’s successful pay-TV businesses across the continent. Under his leadership over the last five years the subscriber base and turnover of the pay-TV businesses more than doubled. He has made a great contribution and delivered a sterling service to the group. The board wishes him all the best as he takes a break to prepare for the next phase of his career.’

Greyling joined the group as financial manager of MultiChoice Africa in 1996 and served a number of roles at the company, such as CEO and chief financial officer of the African business and chief financial officer for pay-TV at Naspers subsidiary MIH Holdings.
