After 15 years at the helm at MiWay, its founding CEO, René Otto, has hung up
his boots. Otto, who was also part of the team which established OUTsurance, is
handing over the baton to another alumnus of the purple and green insurer, former
OUTsurance chief operating officer Burton Naicker.
"I'm really excited about my successor Burton. He joined us in November. So, I've worked with him already for almost three months. I think he's going do really well," Otto said in an interview with Fin24.
After being part of the OUTsurance launch in 1998, Otto joined Sanlam and PSG's subsidiary Channel Life in the early 2000s.
