Life Healthcare CEO, André Meyer, will step down with effect from the end of June 2017.
The JSE-listed insurer said that when Meyer was appointed as CEO in 2014, his mandate was to drive diversification across both territories and practice areas in order to meet the demands of a changing healthcare environment.
“Today, the group enjoys a presence in India, Poland and across 10 European
countries, which collectively delivers almost 20% of the Group’s EBITDA,” it said.
Meyer is set to “focus on new opportunities”, Life Healthcare said.
The board has appointed Pieter van der Westhuizen, the current CFO as the acting CEO. He has been with Life Healthcare for 18 years and has been the Group CFO for the last 4 years.
The recruitment process to find a suitable CEO with relevant experience has commenced.
