CIB (Pty) Ltd has appointed Elsa Jordaan as its new Executive Head of Claims and Legal.
Previously a general insurance and dispute resolution director at Norton Rose Fulbright, Elsa has been advising on a range of insurance matters, including professional indemnity, computer crime/cyber liability, aviation, medical malpractice, personal injury, and public liability.
Elsa joins CIB as of 1 October 2017, bringing with her 15 years experience in dealing with litigation and alternative dispute resolution in general. She holds a B. Com (Law) degree, a LLB (Cum Laude) degree from the University of Pretoria, and a certificate in Medical Law. Most recently she has been acting as trusted advisor to insurers, underwriters, and brokers in South Africa on cyber risks, insurance policy wordings and coverage issues. Elsa has a keen interest in cyber liability and data protection, avidly following the latest developments locally and globally. She has subsequently become a sought-after speaker and author creating awareness around these emerging issues.
“One of our greatest assets has always been our people,” says Wilhelm von La Chevallerie, MD of CIB (Pty) Ltd. “We’re looking forward to having Elsa on board and expect she will only confirm this affirmation. Her impeccable legal background and strong experience in the insurance industry and cyber insurance makes her the perfect candidate to head up our organisation’s Claims and Legal departments.”
