JOHANNESBURG – IRON Mountain, the global leader in storage and information management services, has announced the appointment of Takalane Khashane as Managing Director of its operations in South Africa.
The appointment is effective immediately.
“I am honoured and excited by this appointment which comes at an invigorating time for Iron Mountain,” Khashane said.
She said the storage and information management industry was experiencing exhilarating changes and opening up new opportunities.

“I am looking forward to working with the team to deliver even more value for our partners in the industries in which we do business,” Khashane said.
She is an accomplished business executive with over 17 years of experience in different leadership positions within the Facilities Management, Pharmaceuticals, Financial Services and Telecommunications industries.

“Takalane brings vast experience from strategic industries, and she will offer a unique approach, knowledge and commercial insights to the business combined with a passion for people, service delivery and customer excellence,” said Jeroen Strik, Vice President and General Manager Western Europe and South Africa at Iron Mountain.
