New board membership

The Centre of Excellence in Financial Services is sad to announce the retirement of Mr Cas Coovadia from the board. Cas has served the board as a founding director from 2016 and his vast experience and guidance has in no small way contributed to the success of COEFS. We wish him well as he tackles the many critical issues through Business Unity South Africa.

We would also like to take this opportunity to welcome Ms Viviene Pearson to the board. As the CEO of the South African Insurance Association, representing the non-life insurance industry, and several other appointments, she brings a wealth of experience to the board and much needed industry diversity. At the same time, we are privileged to have Ms Qiniso Mthembu join the board. As the group Chief Risk Officer at the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, her knowledge of risk and capital markets will broaden our focus towards financial services and introduce additional skills to the board.

Mr. Bert Chanetsa
