FirstRand Namibia appoints Lizette Smit as CFO

FirstRand Namibia has appointed Lizette Smit as the new Chief Financial Officer (CFO) for the Group, effective from May 1, 2023.

Smit takes over from Oscar Capelao, who resigned from the position in April to take up a new role as Deputy Executive Director in the Department of Economic Policy, including Tax Policy, at the Ministry of Finance and Public Enterprises.

Smit, a Chartered Accountant, joined FirstRand Namibia in 2020 as Senior Finance Manager.

She has previously held the CFO position at listed Oryx Properties.

Conrad Dempsey, CEO of FirstRand Namibia, welcomed Smit's appointment, praising her experience and expertise.

"We are pleased to have Lizette join our team as CFO. Her wealth of knowledge and experience will be invaluable to us as we continue in our drive to help build a globally competitive Namibia," he said.
