The Transnet Board of Directors consists of individuals from diverse backgrounds​​


The Transnet Board of Directors consists of individuals from diverse racial, gender, business, professional, financial and cultural backgrounds, which is crucial to the successful direction of corporations in the present day South Africa. After consulting with the board, the directors are appointed by the respective shareholders.

All directors are equally accountable for the proper stewardship of the Company's affairs. The executive directors have specific responsibilities for the various businesses and functions of the Group.

The non-executive directors have a particular responsibility to ensure that proposals and strategies, sought to be implemented by the executive directors, are fully discussed and critically examined against the best long-term interests of the shareholder, and all other stakeholders of Transnet. In doing so, the non-executive directors have full and timely access to the services of the Group Company Secretary as well as to all relevant information.​​
