Momentum Metropolitan Group’s new Boss Jeanette Marais joins us in the C-Suite
Momentum Metropolitan Holdings has made history by naming Jeanette Marais as the first female chief executive officer in the life-insurance industry.
This follows the announcement that Hillie Meyer – who has been at the helm with the firm for five years – is set to retire. Marais has been deputy chief executive officer at Momentum Metropolitan since 2018 and has provided executive oversight for a range of businesses comprising Momentum Investments, Momentum Distribution Services, Consult by Momentum, and Momentum Money within her portfolio.
Momentum Metropolitan Chairperson, Paul Baloyi said,
“Having been a key contributor to the group’s evolution since 2018, Marais holds intimate knowledge of Momentum Metropolitan’s strategy, business areas, and culture. She truly understands the current industry environment, the unique set of demands on the business, and what is required for the business to succeed.”
Marais will take up the hot seat on the 1st of August.
