Following an earlier SENS announcement by the Board on 09 September 2014, which recorded that Dr Johan van Zyl, Sanlam Group Chief Executive would retire in 2015, it has now been agreed that Dr Van Zyl would step down as Group Chief Executive and also retire from the boards of Sanlam and Sanlam Life Insurance Limited with effect from 30 June 2015.

As a result, the Board agreed to bring forward the final measurement of his remuneration arrangements to coincide with the end of his tenure as Group Chief Executive Officer. The vesting of the applicable restricted shares will therefore be determined after the finalisation of the Group’s 2015 interim results.

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.”
