Southey joins Intellidex board

Posted in: Press Releases on January 18, 2019

Johannesburg – Intellidex has appointed Caroline Southey to its board as an independent non-executive director.

Caroline is an experienced media and banking professional, bringing more than 30 years of international experience in senior leadership positions to the board. She is editor of The Conversation Africa and has previously held positions as director of community banking at Standard Bank, speech writer for the CEO of Barclays Africa and editor of the Financial Mail.

“Caroline brings a strongly independent perspective to the board and considerable wisdom,” says Intellidex chairman Dr Stuart Theobald. “I am very excited to have her as part of the team as we build the business. I know she will add great value in ensuring Intellidex has a robust governance structure and in providing guidance to the executive team.”

“Intellidex has built a strong presence in the South African market and increasingly in the rest of the world,” says Caroline. “It’s an exciting time to join the board to support its development into a world class research and consulting firm.”

She joins executive directors Dr Stuart Theobald, Peter Attard Montalto and Dr Graunt Kruger, as well as non-executive director Vuyo Jack on the board.

Last year Intellidex expanded its global operations by opening an office in Boston under the leadership of Dr Kruger, who heads Intellidex’s financial services strategy consulting. It also expanded capacity at its London office with the appointment of Attard Montalto as head of capital markets research.
