"We're excited to have Ntulini join the FMI executive leadership team, where she will contribute to the company's continued focus on innovation, growth and transformation," says Neil Wolno, FMI's acting CEO.

"As a brand and communications leader, she brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table. I am confident that she will elevate our brand and take FMI to greater heights," adds Wolno.

Ntulini holds an impressive track record, having held various roles in the marketing departments of Liberty, Old Mutual, Discovery Health and Hollard. She has agency and consulting experience, having co-owned a through-the-line advertising and design agency in the Western Cape and serving as managing director at Collective ID.

In 2016, Bidvest Financial Services acquired FMI, which positioned the company for its next phase of growth and reinvention of systems, technology and processes.

Ntulini says, "I am very excited to join FMI and to be working with the marketing team to reposition the brand, ramp up digital marketing transformation and partner with our financial advisers by placing the client at the heart of everything we do."

"As a company whose vision is to be the leading provider of income protection insurance to all South Africans, we look forward to Ntulini's leadership role in shaping the future of the FMI brand and contributing to our transformation journey and business growth," Wolno concludes.
