Zim was appointed onto the board in April 2007. Northam chief executive, Paul Dunne, paid tribute to Zim commenting, “Mr Zim will be remembered for the empowerment transaction with Zambezi Platinum, which secured Northam’s HDSA equity status, serving as the catalyst for the company to launch its growth ambitions. Northam is now a multi-asset, low-cost PGM producer, with a healthy project pipeline being developed.”

Zim is being replaced as chairman by Brian Mosehla who was appointed to the board in August 2015 as a non-executive director. He is a member of the Northam investment committee and will replace Zim as a member of the nomination committee.
