Medihelp, South Africa’s third largest open scheme has elected Mr Pieter Vosloo as new chairman on its Board of Trustees at its 104th Annual General Meeting (AGM) held in Pretoria recently.

Vosloo replaced the previous Chairman, Mr Hennie Koekemoer, who did not stand for the position of chairman or vice-chairman this year. Koekemoer, the chairman since 2007, is however still a member of the Board.

Having worked in the fields of corporate banking and commerce and industry as a chartered accountant and financial director, Vosloo also started a financial consulting business in 2004.

His medical schemes’ experience stems from being elected to the board of trustees of Sakav Medical Scheme which amalgamated with Openplan Medical Scheme in 2000. He was elected to the board of trustees of Openplan in the same year. With Openplan’s amalgamation with Medihelp in 2009 he was elected as board member of Medihelp.

In addition to Vosloo’s chairmanship, two members were elected to the Board following the expiry of the terms of office of Prof. Tien van Staden and Dr Lourens du Toit. Prof. van Staden was re-elected as Vice-Chairman to the Board for a term of three years and a new member, Mr Chris Klopper, was elected in place of the outgoing Dr du Toit. Klopper is CEO of the SATU/SAEF group and has a long history in especially the fields of education and labour relations.
