Bob van Dijk, the chief executive of Naspers and Prosus, has stepped down from his position effective immediately, the firms said. Ervin Tu, presently Prosus’ Group Chief Investment Officer, has been promoted as interim chief executive of the firms.
“The Boards of Prosus and Naspers want to thank Bob for his leadership over a full decade,” said Koos Bekker, chair of Prosus in a statement. “During this time substantial businesses were established in Classifieds, Food Delivery and Payments, while we also entered several new fields. We appreciate Bob’s contributions and wish him much success with his future career.”
The news press release didn’t include a statement from Bob. The firms said their boards and Bob “mutually agreed” that he will step down from his position. He will continue to consult the company for a year, the firms said.
