The FPI announced today that CEO, John Arnesen, will leave the company at the end of April to lead the South Africa Qualifications Authority (SAQA) National Qualifications Framework (NQF) advocacy campaign.

“I have had the opportunity to work closely with John during my time on the Board and more specifically so during my time as Vice-Chairperson and for the short time that I have been the Chairperson. John has played a key leadership role in the FPI since becoming CEO in September 2006 and has, together with the other FPI staff, taken charge of the implementation of the FPI’s strategic vision of being the professional body for financial planners in South Africa. John has also successfully represented the FPI at meetings and within the structures of the international Financial Planning Standards Board (FPSB).” says Gerhardt Meyer, FPI Chairperson.

The FPI Board has commenced a formal process to recruit a new CEO.

Yes, damages should only be borne by companies in those circumstances which it is reasonable for them to do so.
No. If there is a sufficiently close link between the employee’s acts and the purposes and business of the employer, the employer should be held liable for delicts committed by their employees.
As long as the employee is acting within the course and scope of his or her duty… the employer will be held liable.
