Imperial is pleased to announce the appointment of Rochelle Gabriels to the role of Chief Financial Officer (CFO) for Logistics Africa. She will also serve as a member of the Logistics Africa Exco. Rochelle has 18 years of finance experience, initially qualifying as a CA and earning her stripes with Deloitte. Since then, she progressed through the ranks of MWEB and MultiChoice Group in roles of increasing seniority and relevance.
As CFO of MWEB, Rochelle transformed the finance team from a decentralised to a central structure - with teams focusing on financial planning and analysis, financial processes and systems, financial reporting and compliance. She also implemented SAP Finance, leading to one financial system from purchase order to general ledger and the automation of certain processes. In her role as Head of Finance at MultiChoice, Rochelle implemented a finance-shared services business across South Africa and led a team of 170. She was also part of the core team responsible for the unbundling of MultiChoice from Naspers.
We wish Rochelle every success in this demanding role and have no doubt that we will benefit from her extensive experience, strong work ethic and collaborative leadership style.
