"We’re excited to have Zanele 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 is a strategic marketing and advertising executive with 19 years' worth of experience in building brands and developing and implementing marketing strategies that translate into effective integrated marketing communication solutions, says FMI.

Combined with her classical marketing experience, she brings a strong entrepreneurial flair to FMI at a time when the insurer is poised for making a splash in the life insurance space, adds the life insurer.

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.
