CRO named exec in Barclays Africa growth initiative
After the sale by its UK parent, Barclays South Africa is set to split into four separate operating units as part of the lender’s growth strategy. The Johannesburg-based bank, South Africa’s third-largest, hopes to double its size and earn at least 12% of African banking revenues following its split from its London-based parent company in 2016. As part of the new growth strategy in Africa, the bank announced that August Van Heerden will become its new chief risk officer and part of the executive committee.
