WORK­ING

Finweek English Edition - - COVER HEINIE WERTH, YEGS RAMIAH, DANIËL KRIEL, - ANNE LIV­ING­STONE,

CHIEF EX­EC­U­TIVE: SAN­LAM SKY SO­LU­TIONS “What I ad­mire most is not so much the strat­egy, but the way he has re­lent­lessly ex­e­cuted it. He has a clear and sim­ple vi­sion, there is ef­fi­cient cap­i­tal man­age­ment, he knows where we want to go and he puts bril­liant peo­ple into po­si­tions and lets them do their thing.” “He gives us the space to do our work and sup­ports the broad ideas, but is not in­ter­fer­ing. He has high ex­pec­ta­tions but gives you free­dom, if you move in the right di­rec­tion he won’t give you a hard time. He is open to dis­agree­ment, you can dif­fer with him, it is a ma­ture style of man­age­ment.” “He is one of the few peo­ple I know who is able to see the big pic­ture, but able to hone into the de­tail… if you go with a strong case, he lets you do it. He leaves you to do what you have to do.

“We have the same at­ti­tude: be brief, be bright, be gone.” “He is tough − a tough boss and de­mands his pound of flesh, but he cre­ates the op­por­tu­ni­ties for us to grow the busi­nesses with­out in­ter­fer­ence and with­out cre­at­ing bu­reau­cracy.

“Jo­han is his own man with his own style, his strat­egy has been a tremen­dous suc­cess.”
