We have recently restructured our Healthcare business where we created a healthcare Holdings Group that we call 3Sixty Health, the then Chief Executive Officer of Sechaba has been appointed to lead this group which will include a new Biopharmaceutical company amongst other subsidiaries. We are registering this company as 3Sixty BioPharmaceutical. We do a lot of interesting things in our group but 3Sixty BioPhamceutical is by far the most important and the most exciting project. Dr Mahanjana is succeeded in his position of CEO of Sechaba by Dr Mashadi Motlana, her father was once in this position of CEO of Sechaba. Sechaba has been in existence for 40 years and it is for the first time that it is led by a woman.
Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s a great privilege to share a few thoughts with you on behalf of the Standard Bank Group, a proud partner of the BMF. You have chosen an interesting topic as your theme – Ethical leadership as a catalyst for transformation and inclusive economic growth. I thought it may be best to speak about Ethical Leadership tonight, rather than a generic sponsors’ speech. Ethical Leadership as a catalyst for transformation and inclusive economic growth In the words of Mark Sanborn:
“Headlines regularly inform us of the public downfall of leaders from every area of endeavour – business, politics, religion and even sports. One day they are on top of the heap, the next, the heap is on top of them.”
