Commenting on the Board and Executive Management changes, Mr Desmond Smith, Chairman of the Boards of Directors of Sanlam and Sanlam Life Insurance Limited, said: “It has been a real pleasure to have had Arun serve on our board. I, as well as my fellow board members appreciate the diligence with which he has served our Group.”
“I would like to thank Johan for his unwavering commitment to transform the Sanlam Group from primarily a South African life insurer to a diversified financial services Group since his appointment as Group Chief Executive in 2003. Sanlam is now on a sustainable growth path and has a bright future. Our succession planning has been made known well in advance to ensure a smooth leadership transition. The Board congratulates Ian and looks forward to his contribution as Group Chief Executive Officer. I would further like to congratulate Hubert and Anton on their respective appointments and thank André for the immense contribution he has made as Chief Actuary and Group Risk Officer over the years.”
