OUTsurance's Jan Hofmeyr nominated for CFO Awards 2018

OUTsurance CFO Jan Hofmeyr has been nominated for the CFO Awards 2018. This is Jan's debut nomination. The young executive has been instrumental in helping the insurance company implement its FinTech strategy and make key acquisitions.
jan took on the role in November 2007 and has been instrumental in many of the insurance firm’s initiatives. These include the recently announced OUTvest investment service, offering goal-based advice and passive investment solutions via a dedicated website and app, and a Sage ERP upgrade. A key consideration to incentivise your management team to think long-term is to give them ownership in the business, said the chartered accountant at a CFO event. This will help them understand that a hard decision today will have long-term benefits for them, as part owners of the business, in the future.
The annual "Oscars for South African CFOs", the CFO Awards recognise CFOs of listed companies, large corporations, state-owned entities and government institutions and awards them for outstanding performance and leadership.
Formed in 1998, OUTsurance is a subsidiary of Rand Merchant Investment Holdings and is headquartered in Centurion. It offers a range of insurance services in South Africa, with subsidiaries in Namibia, Australia and New Zealand.
