Capitec has appointed Danie Meintjes as chairman of the human resources and remuneration committee with effect from 14 October 2019. Danie is a former Group CEO at Mediclininc International where he had prior experience as Divisional HR Executive and was closely involved with the Company's approach to engaging with, investing in and rewarding people.

He was seconded to serve as a senior executive of the Mediclinic group's operations in Dubai in 2006, and appointed as CEO of Mediclinic Middle East in 2007.
