South African cement maker PPC appoints permanent CEO

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South African cement maker PPC said on Wednesday interim chief executive officer Johan Claassen had been appointed permanent CEO and executive director of the group with immediate effect.

Claassen, previously managing director of the South African firm, was appointed interim CEO in July after the sudden resignation of former CEO Darryll Castle.
