Tom Creamer new Telesure CEO

Telesure Investment Holdings (TIH) has announced that it has appointed Tom Creamer (pictured) as its new CEO. Creamer’s appointment follows the very recent resignation of Manny Rios, who left TIH due to differences in perspective on the strategic direction of the business.

Stephen Klinkert, Deputy Chairman and CEO of TIH's parent company, BHL Holdings, said of Creamer's appointment:

"Tom is a seasoned executive leader and innovator who helped shape the South African insurance landscape. I have every confidence that Tom is the right person to lead TIH going forward and that he will continue to grow the business from strength to strength."

Creamer first joined TIH in 1988 and has, over the years, been responsible for developing the company's multi-channel, multi-brand strategy approach. This included conceptualising, launching and building several of the country's leading insurance brands and products, as well as concluding affinity deals with some of the country's most trusted brands. Since 2014 Creamer has led the ongoing success of TIH's short-term insurance portfolio. He will now assume responsibility for the financial and insurance interests of TIH.
