Bob van Dijk: Naspers’s youthful CEO, able custodian for 20% of the JSE

Bob van Dijk: Naspers’s youthful CEO, able custodian for 20% of the JSE

Although most might not appreciate it, Naspers is an integral part of every South African’s retirement plan. It accounts for a staggering 20% of the JSE’s Top 40 index (and an even heftier 28% of the SWIX), obliging every pension fund to hold a chunk of its equity. That puts a heavy responsibility onto the shoulders of 44 year old CEO Bob van Dijk, but as you’ll hear, it’s a challenge he’s up for. Coming up from three years in the job, Van Dijk is an executive very much in the mould of the group’s legendary chairman, Koos Bekker - attentive, focused, entrepreneurial and curious, our interview showed me Naspers (and the big slug it represents of the savings of South Africans) is in very good hands. Have a listen and you’re sure to agree. – Alec Hogg
