Octodec Investments appoints Anabel Vieira as its new executive FD


Anabel will be taking over from Anthony Stein, who plans to emigrate to Australia with his family.

Octodec Investments has announced the appointment of Anabel Vieira as its new executive FD following the departure of Anthony Stein, who has indicated that he will be emigrating with his family to Australia and has subsequently resigned as the company’s FD.

According to a statement by Octodec, Anabel has been an integral part of the company’s finance team over the past five years. She is a qualified CA(SA) and has been employed by City Property Administration, Octodec’s asset and property manager, since January 2016. During this time, she has overseen the finance department, which is responsible for the financial affairs of Octodec, playing an integral part in financial reporting, and assisting Anthony where necessary.

Prior to joining City Property, Anabel was a partner at Grant Thornton for 23 years. Seven of those years she spent as the audit partner of Premium Properties, which has since merged with Octodec.

“The board is confident that Anabel will seamlessly transition into this role, providing the necessary expertise and continuity required by Octodec,” the company said.

In order to ensure a smooth transition of the finance function, Anthony’s resignation will be effective from 31 August. He will remain employed by City Property until 31 December to facilitate the successful completion of the company’s financial year-end and handover process. Anabel will be appointed into the role with effect from 1 September.
