He will take up his new position in July.

"Leaving was not something I anticipated, but an opportunity to make a contribution to nation branding was an opportunity I could not decline.

He was confident that the team would maintain the momentum and future business growth of the ICC.

ICC board chairperson Mato Madlala said: "Miller took on an incredible challenge in working to increase international business.

Matola has also been successful in the market development of the Arena, which has become one of the hubs of the entertainment industry.
