In the three years that Myles has been at the helm of the company he has done an outstanding job at both a strategic and operational level ... However, I am pleased to say that his experience and advice will not be lost to the group as Myles has been invited to remain on the board of the Standard Bank group as a non-executive director.

He will be joining the board of Liberty Life as will Rex Tomlinson who will continue in his role of deputy chief executive and will in this capacity be assuming broader responsibilities.
