Bryte, the proactive business risk specialist, announces the promotion of Collin Molepe, company Chief Operations Officer, to the role of Deputy Chief Executive Officer with effect from 1 June 2018. Molepe has had a distinguished career with the business to date.
Edwyn O’ Neill, CEO at Bryte said, “This is an important step forward for our business as we expand our focus on commercial customers and consolidate our approach to customer risk profile management. Collin has been instrumental in the success of our business as Bryte and the creation of this new role recognises not just his contribution to date, but the ongoing role he will play in helping drive further growth and operational sustainability as we expand our distribution network.”
In addition to his current portfolio, which includes operations, technology and human resources, Molepe will work closely with O’Neill and the executive team to refresh the company’s life distribution model. Molepe has also been appointed as Managing Director of Bryte Life, where he will actively focus on identifying and launching risk management solutions that meet the needs of South Africa’s uninsured market. Bryte Life aims to facilitate wider financial inclusion by providing access to tailored microinsurance solutions that consider the realities and requirements of everyday South Africans.
Molepe said, “I am delighted to accept this new role and believe that Bryte is well on its way to transforming the way insurers meet the dynamic needs of all South Africans. We have set ourselves some ambitious challenges, but I know that our proactive approach to risk and the emphasis we place on partnering with customers and brokers to mitigate that risk, rather than just to insure against it retrospectively, has set us ahead already.”
