Appointment of Chief Operating Officer

Andrew (Andy) Openshaw has been appointed as Chief Operating
Officer of Huge. His appointment will take effect when his restraint of
trade commitments to Reunert Limited are waived or fulfilled.

Andy has spent the last ten years of his career at ECN. Initially he joined
as the Chief Sales and Commercial Officer. He was subsequently
instrumental in the sale of ECN to Reunert in 2011, and its integration
into the Reunert ICT segment, where he was appointed as ECN’s CEO.
Under his leadership ECN has become one of South Africa’s leading
Voice and Data service providers, selling in excess of 1.2 billion voice
minutes a year. He successfully leveraged the ECN offerings through a
wide base of channel partners including the Reunert owned Nashua
franchise channel, making it a significant contributor to Reunert. In
October 2016, Andy assumed the CEO role of the Reunert
Communication Cluster. ECN has continued to evolve from an IP voice
provider to a full suite data services business, while the other units in the
cluster focus on connectivity, cloud and Microsoft opportunities. Prior to
ECN, Andy participated in numerous successful entrepreneurial
initiatives. Andy holds a B Pharm degree that he obtained from Rhodes
University. He has also completed the Advanced Executive Program at
the UNISA school of Business Leadership.

Andy’s knowledge of the ICT industry, his entrepreneurship, passion for
growing businesses and his demonstrated ability to successfully operate
within a large listed conglomerate makes him the ideal Chief
Operating Officer for Huge. He will assume responsibility for extracting
value from Huge’s current real estate of customers, which now
exceeds 50 000, and thereafter, growing it, both organically and by
acquisition.
