New CEO for Sasol

Monday, November 4, 2019

Fleetwood Grobler has taken on the role of president, CEO and executive director of South African oil and gas firm Sasol as of November 1. Up until his new appointment, Grobler was vice president for chemicals.

Grobler’s appointment follows the departure of the company’s co-CEOs, Bongani Nqwababa and Stephen Cornell. The pair stepped down, or were forced to step down, due to the poor management and a misjudged investment in the multi-billion-dollar Lake Charles Chemicals Project, a gas facility in Louisiana, USA.
