In an announcement today to staff, Phumelela CEO Rian Du Plessis advised that Media and Marketing Executive, Ken Rutherford had tendered his resignation and would be leaving the company on or about the 7th of June.

“Ken and his family have decided to return to New Zealand permanently and Ken will be joining the Waikato Racing Club as General Manager with effect from 1 August.

Ken joined us in January 2011 and during the past 2 years has been a valued and respected member of our executive management. It has been a privilege to have had Ken as part of our team.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ken for his contribution to our success and to wish him and his family success, good health and happiness in New Zealand. We will certainly stay in touch and look for new ways to continue to do business together.

I am in discussions with Ken on the handover of his responsibilities in the short term. We will decide upon his succession in due course and will make a further announcement in this regard as soon as possible,” said Du Plessis.
