Katy Caldis has been appointed as the new Principal Officer and Chief Executive Officer of Fedhealth effective 1 November. Caldis succeeds Jeremy Yatt who resigned earlier this year to explore opportunities abroad.

With a strong actuarial background and medical scheme track record, Caldis takes over on 1 November from Peter Jordaan, Fedhealth Channel Marketing Executive, who acted as PO/CEO after Yatt’s departure.

Having spent the last two years at Bonitas and the previous four at Medscheme Health Risk Solutions (MHRS) as a Consulting Actuary, Caldis brings considerable experience to the Fedhealth stable. At Bonitas, a Medscheme administered scheme, she acted as Business Development Director and Scheme Actuary and was instrumental in establishing Bonitas Marketing which now operates successfully in 5 offices countrywide. As scheme actuary, Caldis provided strategic direction in product development and pricing. During her time at MHRS she was also integrally involved in annual benefit design, interpretation of legislative changes and financial projections.

Born in Zimbabwe and educated at Arundel School in Harare, she graduated from the University of Cape Town with a Bachelor of Business Science degree with Honours in Actuarial Science and Statistics and a Major in Economics. She was admitted as a Fellow of the Actuarial Society of South Africa in 1995.
