CFO Cobus Loubser to head up Curro Holdings as new CEO


The CFO explains that he looks forward to building on the firm foundation laid by his predecessors.

Curro Holdings has announced the appointment of its current CFO Cobus Loubser as the successor to CEO Andries Greyling, who will be stepping down from the role in January 2023.

“I look forward to building on the firm foundation set by my predecessors in this profoundly important business,” Cobus said. “Our focus remains on delivering quality education to all learners under our care. We have a strong and very experienced team in place to enthusiastically drive educational opportunities in southern Africa, and enhance shareholder returns.”

Cobus, who has been in his current role since January 2021, will remain interim CFO of the company until his replacement has been appointed. His broad leadership and commercial experience, such as serving as the financial manager of Virgin Active SA for four years, holding the CFO position at Holdsport for 11 years, and subsequently serving as the CEO of Long4Life’s Sport and Recreation division until 2020, will prove beneficial to his new role.

Andries will, however, remain with the company until June 2023 to oversee the successful handover to Cobus.

Curro has also appointed its current executive for corporate services and group company secretary, Mari Lategan, as deputy CEO.
