Price Forbes South Africa: Corporate Team Leadership Update

After four years at the helm of our Corporate team, Anton Mol has decided to leave Price Forbes to pursue an exciting opportunity.

Under Anton’s energetic and influential leadership our Corporate business went from strength to strength, gaining trust from significant clients and insurance markets alike.

We were delighted to have Anton back on his feet, after the traumatic and significant life-changing event on 23rd April this year where he suffered a cardiac arrest in the office. Not many people survive a cardiac arrest, and this is testament to his fighting spirit, along with proactive intervention from colleagues, he is able to stand here with us and tell the story.

During his recovery Anton spent time reflecting on his priorities, which has ultimately led him to make the decision to leave Price Forbes.

Anton will be transitioning out of the business over the next few days and he will be available to assist with handover issues during the month of August if required.

He will be sorely missed by the team and we wish him well with his new opportunity.

Anton’s departure has led to an exciting opportunity for Andre Brooks who, with immediate effect, will step into Anton’s shoes and take up the role of Head of Corporate Solutions. This is an exciting development for Price Forbes and for Andre, who has moved up the ranks in our business since he won the Insurance Apprentice competition in 2016. Andre has shown remarkable leadership skills since he joined us in February 2015, especially during the time that Anton was out of action following his cardiac arrest.

I am confident that Andre will take the Corporate business to new heights and I look forward to working with him as a senior leader in our team going forward.

On a similar note, Sophie Maggs has announced her resignation and will be leaving Price Forbes during the month of October. Sophie has made a significant contribution to the Corporate team during her time at Price Forbes, taking control of a technical broking environment that was in some disarray a few years ago.

Sophie will be fully involved in renewal and handover activity until mid-October and will also be involved in identifying and selecting a suitable replacement.

I am confident that we will continue to provide our clients with the professional and personalized service experience that we have become known for and I am looking forward to further growth in our business, with new and exciting leadership and business opportunities.

 

Sincerely,

Warren Bolttler
Chief Executive Officer, Price Forbes (Pty) Ltd.
