Leslie Sedibe has been appointed the new Chairman of the Board of CAPASSO.

He takes over from Adv. Nick Matzukis who was at the helm of the organisation since inception until the end of his tenure . "CAPASSO said they would like to thank Nick for his tireless commitment to the organisation and its members, his contribution to the growth of the organisation is truly immeasurable. Under his tenure, CAPASSO grew mechanical rights collections into a thriving business with the final year of collections surpassing R100 million."

Under Sedibe’s stewardship, CAPASSO is confident that we will continue the same growth trajectory. Sedibe is a businessman with an indelible record within the entertainment business.

The Chief Executive Officer of CAPASSO, Jotam Matariro mentioned that it was a challenge trying to get the right candidate as we were looking for a candidate with the right mix of academic qualifications, business savvy and legal expertise to lead the CAPASSO Board in line with the current CAPASSO Africa growth strategy.
