New Chairman for Medshield

30 October 2006 Traffic Integrated Marketing

Medshield, one of South Africa's largest medical aids, has announced a new leader at its helm. Takalani Nwedamutswu has taken over the reins from Peter Moyanga, who has stepped down to pursue other business interests. 

Nwedamutswu is HR Director of the Gauteng Department of Education and District Head of the Soweto area with a mandate to develop and implement a turn-around strategy for the district. He has held a number of leadership roles within civic and political organisations, but is particularly enthusiastic about his new role as Medshield's Chairman. The appointment comes at an exciting time as the scheme enjoys doubled production from revised options and benefits as well as competitive pricing and customer focused service. 

Education and healthcare are evidently Nwedamutswu's two greatest passions. Having already served on Medshields Board of Trustees for 2 years, his new position with the scheme is an achievement he has been working towards. Nwedamutswu comments, "I'm delighted with my appointment as Chairman of Medshield. This is a scheme that is being closely watched by key players within the healthcare industry and for good reason." He continues, "I plan to carry on the great work Peter Moyanga has done, in successfully growing Medshield's position within the private sector, while also offering fantastic healthcare options for public sector employees."
