HEAD OF ABSA PRIVATE BANKING Tindleni started her career as a pharmacist but took the leap into the corporate sector when she joined Accenture as a consultant. In 2007 she entered the banking sector as a strategy analyst for FNB Commercial Banking. This was followed by a year-long stint as a business manager for Barclays in the UK. She has held a number of management positions at Absa, and has been head of Private Banking since 2014. She holds a Postgraduate Diploma in Management (PDM) from Wits Business School and an MBA from the Gordon Institute of Business Science. The opportunity to move out of pharmacy launched my career outside the space I had been trained in. Unlike other professions like engineering or accounting, where people can explore other verticals in their career, it is not the same for health professionals. Joining Accenture was my biggest break initially. My second-biggest break is my current job as Absa’s head of Private Banking.
