Senior promotions at Investec Asset Management SA

30 August 2007 Investec Asset Management SA

Against the backdrop of its growing global footprint and special focus on the opportunities in Africa, Investec Asset Management today announced two senior promotions. John Green, currently MD of Investec Asset Management SA, will assume the role of MD, Pan-Africa, with immediate effect, while Thabo Khojane, currently Deputy MD of Investec Asset Management SA, will step up to the role of MD, South Africa. 
"In order to capture the available opportunities and consolidate the gains we have made since inception, we constantly have to evolve the organisation. Both John and Thabo have truly earned their stripes in our organisation. These are not revolutionary changes, but logical incremental changes necessary to sustain the continued development of our business. We look forward to their continued contribution to our future success," said Hendrik du Toit, CEO of Investec Asset Management.
Green joined Investec Asset Management in 2001 and initially served as MD of the retail side of the business before becoming MD of the entire SA operation. He previously worked as a management consultant at Andersen and Bain and joined Fedsure shortly before this firm was acquired by Investec.  In addition to his wider regional brief, of which South Africa remains a very important part, Green will devote time to growth initiatives in other parts of the business, such as the development of Investecs Africa product range.
Khojane joined Investec Asset Management's institutional business development team in 1998, where he was responsible for a portfolio of client relationships. He took over as head of Business Development in 2001, assuming responsibility for all client-related activity, including sales, marketing, client service and middle office.  He was promoted to Deputy MD of Investec Asset Management SA in 2005. Before joining Investec Asset Management, Khojane was a strategy director at Lifecare, a hospital management business, and before that at Monitor Group as a management consultant.
