State-owned power utility Eskom's board of directors has tasked incoming CEO Dan Marokane with prioritising three key areas – assessing the generation operational recovery plan, reviewing Eskom’s unbundling plans and engaging with internal and external stakeholders – in his first 100 days in office.

Marokane on March 1 assumed the role of Eskom CEO at a time when the utility faces an existential challenge and is undergoing significant changes that require hands-on, bold and decisive leadership.

“We expect Dan and his leadership team to accomplish at least two critical tasks. First, they must address the current business challenges. Loadshedding must become a thing of the past. Second, they need to reposition and restructure Eskom to enable growth and sustainability,” Eskom chairperson Mteto Nyati said in a statement.

These first 100 days are crucial for helping Marokane gain necessary insights about Eskom and the industry. He should be in a position to engage with the media at the end of this critical period, Nyati added.

He expressed confidence in Marokane’s abilities, and the leadership and staff of Eskom, and emphasised their collective commitment to turning the organisation around.

“Dan has the full support of the Eskom board. Eskom employees are excited to welcome him back into the organisation. He will steer Eskom toward stability, reliability and sustainability,” he said.
