Mr Van der Merwe, CA (SA), is credited with having achieved sustained success over his tenure of close to 14 years and for the substantial value he has contributed to the Sanlam Group. As part of the business succession and continuity planning, Mr Van der Merwe will continue to serve as a non-executive director on the Sanlam Investments’ board of directors as well as a number of other subsidiary boards on which he currently serves as nonexecutive director. He will therefore remain closely associated with the Sanlam Group.

Mr Roux, CA (SA), was appointed in his role as Chief Operating Officer in 2005 and has worked alongside Mr Van der Merwe on key strategic matters. Mr Roux will form part of the Sanlam Group Executive Committee and will report to the Sanlam Group Chief Executive Officer, Mr Ian Kirk.

The board of directors of Sanlam wishes to thank Mr Van der Merwe for his contribution since June 2002 and congratulates Mr Roux on his new position and looks forward to his valuable contribution.
