RFIB has announced two new additions to its African operations as well as the opening of new offices in Johannesburg.
Fhumulani Munzhedzi joins as head of facultative for Africa and is reunited with Lee Ellis, CEO of RFIB Africa and Neesha Parbhoo, director of RFIB Africa.
Ellis commented: “It is my distinct pleasure to work with Fhums once again. Combining his ten years of facultative broking experience across Africa with the strength of the RFIB Group platform will undoubtedly release significant value for our regional clients.”
Nina Joubert joins as head of client experience, effective 1 January 2019. Joubert was most recently the general manager of the Insurance Institute of Gauteng and has a proven track record in client management, branding and marketing.
Parbhoo added: “Nina’s work at the institute was instantly recognisable as being of the very highest standard. Her unyielding work ethic combined with her passion for brand management and marketing will ensure RFIB clients receive nothing other than the exceptional levels of service they deserve.”
Additionally, RFIB has signed a long-term lease on its new African headquarters in Montecasino, Johannesburg.
“RFIB’s new headquarters underlines the Group commitment to the African continent. The continued investment in both platform and people offers a continually evolving, increasingly enticing proposition for the African reinsurance buyer,” commented Paul Ray, director of RFIB Africa.
