Dutch technology investor Prosus and its South African parent group Naspers have appointed Fabricio Bloisi as their new CEO. This follows the abrupt resignation of Bob van Dijk in September 2023, who had served as chief executive of Naspers since 2014 and of Prosus since 2019.

Bloisi, currently the CEO of iFood, a food delivery company and Naspers portfolio company based in Latin America, will assume the role of group CEO on July 1st.

Prosus and Naspers Chair Koos Bekker remarked, “Backing exceptional entrepreneurs who improve people’s everyday lives through technology has brought us some success over the years. Fabricio is an entrepreneur with a proven track record. His appointment as CEO places innovation and entrepreneurship at the heart of the group.”

Bekker highlighted Bloisi’s achievements, noting, “Fabricio has established iFood as one of the most innovative food delivery companies in the world. He has a combination of vision, deep operational experience, and strong discipline. It is this skill set which the board believes makes him the right person to now lead us.”

He also acknowledged Ervin Ti, who served as interim CEO after Bob van Dijk’s resignation and has been appointed as president and chief investment officer. Bekker praised Ti’s leadership, stating, “Ervin has done an outstanding job as our interim CEO. He navigated a challenging external environment, refocused our teams, and brought energy and vigor to bear. As our new president and chief investment officer, he will play a fundamental role in shaping the group’s future strategy, investments, and capital allocation.”
