The SAIA board appoints chief executive
Viviene Pearson, CEO, SAIA
The Board of the South African Insurance Association (SAIA) is pleased to announce the appointment of Ms Viviene Pearson as the SAIA Chief Executive Officer, effective 1 January 2016. The decision was taken at the Board’s meeting on 4 December 2015.
Prior to her appointment, Ms Pearson was the acting Chief Executive of the association since December 2014, while also still being responsible for the SAIA Motor and Property Insurance portfolio as the General Manager for Insurance Risks. Ms Pearson joined the SAIA in 2004 as the Image and Reputation Manager.
During her tenure as acting SAIA CEO, Ms Pearson successfully led the association through a challenging but necessary period of change, aligning it to the needs of its members. This involved the redefining of the SAIA’s value proposition as an industry body, as well as reviewing its business model to better serve its members and to deliver on its mandate. The new business model was approved by the SAIA Board on 9 September 2015, and will be implemented going forward.
The SAIA Board wishes Ms Pearson all the best in her new position and looks forward to working with her in furthering the objectives of the association and in repositioning the SAIA as a strong and relevant industry body. The Board also thanks the SAIA team for their continued dedication and hard work during the restructuring process.
