Vodacom pays tribute to its independent non-executive director David Brown, who tragically passed away on Sunday 19 June 2022.

David was highly regarded and widely respected by his fellow Board members. Over a period of more than ten years, David made a significant contribution to the Board, having served Vodacom with impeccable measure and sound judgement. His leadership leaves an indelible mark on the Vodacom team and his generous advice and wise counsel will be sorely missed. 

David was an invaluable member of the Vodacom family, who was held in great esteem by all who knew him. We are deeply saddened by the news of his passing and wish to acknowledge the significant impact and legacy he has left at Vodacom as a beloved colleague and friend. I would also like to offer my personal heartfelt condolences to David’s family.

Shameel Joosub, CEO, Vodacom Group

He was appointed as the lead independent director in July 2020 and was a member of the Remuneration Committee. The Chairman, on behalf of the Board, management and staff extends deepest sympathies and condolences to David’s family during this difficult time.
