Donald Khumalo joins FNB as human capital executive

He will look after the FNB and Wesbank retail and commercial cluster.

Donald Khumalo has been appointed as a human capital executive at FNB effective 1 October 2021.

Donald will look after FNB and Wesbank as part of Firstrand following the business transformation and creation of the retail and commercial cluster.

Prior to joining FNB, Donald has been the HR director at the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) since 2016.

“I am grateful for the opportunity I had to serve one of the country’s prestigious organisations, the JSE. I am eternally indebted to the JSE because it has contributed immensely to my growth. I thank the leadership and the rest of the JSE family for the support,” says Donald.

Donald says he is now embarking on an exciting journey ahead and thanks FNB for the opportunity. “The role is exciting because of the transformation journey financial services companies such as banks are going through. The proliferation of fintech, which aims to disintermediate banks, presents an exciting challenge, because banks have to pivot their business model to remain relevant.”

Donald is hoping to achieve a lot: “I am joining new colleagues whom I will partner with to create magic. So let me get down to work instead.”
