Santam is pleased to announce the following appointments to the Executive Committee: Yegs Ramiah, Executive Head: People and Brand, and Quinten Matthew, Executive Head: Specialist Business.

Yegs Ramiah, formerly employed as Deputy Chairman with Merrill Lynch (SA), joined Santam in December 2009 to assume responsibility for the People and Brand portfolio. Yegs brings extensive executive and strategic experience at both regional (Southern Africa) and international level. Her 11 year tenure at Merrill Lynch has seen Yegs responsible for not only the Marketing and HR portfolios but also Legal, Compliance, Corporate Governance, Transformation and CSI (corporate social investment).

Quinten Matthew joined the Executive Team with effect from 1 January 2010. With Santam’s specialist, corporate and Centriq businesses continuing to assume increasing strategic importance, Quinten’s experience and track record will ensure that this portfolio will be uniquely represented at the highest level.

Says Ian Kirk: CE of Santam, “We are extremely pleased that Yegs has agreed to join Santam and look forward to the contribution she is going to make over a number of years. Quinten has consistently proven his leadership ability across a number of our business units and has truly earned the appointment to this new Executive position.”
