Head of Sanlam Group Market Development and Stakeholder Relations
Described as an inspirational leader, Lebo Manyatsi encompasses the deeply engrained values of Sanlam. Courage, compassion and respect for others are just some of the traits she exudes in her position.
Before joining Sanlam in 2010, Manyatsi was nominated for the Black Management Forum’s Manager of the Year Award (Western Cape Chapter) – an accolade she is very proud of. After this she was awarded the Nelson Mandela Scholarship and an opportunity to study an MBA at the University of Nottingham, England. In 2013, Monyatsi was one of 34 Sanlam leaders selected for the annual GIBS Executive Leadership Programme.
Manyatsi’s rich experience has equipped her to make her mark at Sanlam – an organisation she describes as having transformed remarkably and aggressively over the years. Her own approach to leadership is to give her team members true ownership of their roles in order to thrive and grow from their mistakes.
