Johannesburg, July 5, 2018 - CMC Networks (CMC) today announced that Marisa Trisolino has been appointed new CEO of CMC, replacing Martin Springer as of 16 July 2018.

“I would like to thank Martin for his hard work and dedication, especially over the last 18 months as CEO. During his time at CMC, the company has seen significant improvements to our networks and customer service and he will remain available to help CMC and Marisa during the transition. I now look forward to working with Marisa as we continue to grow and expand the business. Marisa brings deep industry knowledge and a wealth of experience to CMC. I look forward to working closely with Marisa in settling into her new role as CEO.”

“I am delighted to join CMC, a company with a truly entrepreneurial spirit and ability to get things done quickly and to the highest standards, despite operating in some of the toughest geographies in the world. I believe CMC’s products and service model can be of value to a much larger set of clients across more geographies, and I look forward to working with Rakesh, the team, and with our majority shareholder, The Carlyle Group, to further improve our service to customers.”
