Peregrine Holdings reappoints former CFO and current CEO Robert Katz as CFO


Rob is an old hand at the CFO role at Peregrine, having held it from March 2010 to November 2017.

Peregrine Holdings has announced that dispensation has been obtained from the JSE for Robert Katz to re-assume the role of Peregrine CFO along with his current role as group CEO with effect from 1 November 2019. 

Rob will be taking over from Claire Coward, who has been the Peregrine group CFO since 1 June 2018 and has advised the group that she will be resigning with effect from 31 October 2019 to pursue other opportunities. 

In an interview with CFO South Africa, Rob said that the CEO’s and CFO’s jobs are not all that different. “You attend the same meetings. You have a detailed feel for the numbers. You’re at one with the business and its subsidiaries,” he said. 

Rob was appointed as the CEO of Peregrine Holdings in November 2017 after holding the CFO position at the company for seven years.
