Nedbank Zimbabwe has appointed Sibongile Moyo as the new managing director of the bank with effect from April 1, 2020.
Moyo takes over from Charity Jinya who will be stepping down from the top job at Nedbank Zimbabwe at the end of this month as was first reported by Business Times in February. Jinya had been at the helm of the bank for 10 years.
“The board management and staff of Nedbank Zimbabwe Limited would like to thank (Charity) Jinya for a great leadership during her 10 year tenure at the bank. Her commercial acumen, wealth of knowledge and wisdom will be solely missed.
