JSE-listed manufacturing and construction product supplier Infrasors on Monday reported the resignation of its director and CEO Le Roux Roets, who has completed his contracted term of office, effective from the end of June.

Roets would remain with the group in a new role as head of the silica division, responsible for marketing and new business development.

With effect from July, Trevor Robinson has been appointed to the role of CEO of Infrasors. Robinson is a member of the Engineering Council of South Africa and has more than 20 years of experience in the mining sector, most recently as the former MD of Concor Mining and director of Concor Holdings.

Potgieter joined the group in October 2007 as group financial manager, and has since then served on the Infrasors executive committee and has acted as chief financial officer to the group.
