Financial services firm Mazars South Africa has appointed joint-CEOs Michelle Olckers and Anoop Ninan, effective September 1.
The joint-CEOs were elected by Mazars South Africa’s partners in an independent process, based on manifestos indicating their strategic vision for the company.
The company has 1 000 staff members, 76 partners and 17 directors operating out of 12 offices within the country.
Olckers and Ninan are succeeding outgoing CEO and chairperson Hilton Saven, who will remain a consultant to the company.
