John Horsfall (Western Cape representative)
John has nearly 40 years experience in the Short Term Insurance industry. He started in 1966 with London & Lancashire, then moved across to UNISWA Ins. Co.
UNISWA was acquired by NEG in 1976 and NEG in turn was acquired by M&F in 1990. At that stage he took up a position with Standard General in Johannesburg, as assistant and then Branch Manager Johannesburg, ultimately arriving in Cape Town as Regional Manager Western Cape in January 1995.
Generali, the Italian shareholder, owner of Stangen, decided to disinvest in 1999, whereafter he was ultimately appointed as Regional Manager for Truck & General and ultimately Wheels Underwriting Managers as a Consultant, whilst taking on the additional function as Cape Consultant for Pretium Services in 2004.
The FAIS Compliance commitment grew to the extent that he decided to concentrate in the compliance field. He now services the Western Cape clients of Associated Compliance as well as the non-motor clients in Kwazulu Natal.
From a qualification point of view he has completed a UNISA Risk Management Programme as well as the RE1 and RE5.
