New General Manager appointed for ERA/ERME

We are pleased to introduce Rene Webster as Executive Relocations’ new General Manager for Africa and the Middle East, effective from January 2016! Rene brings with her over 13 years’ senior business management experience, including in England, South Africa and (most recently) Kenya.

She takes over the reins of this position from former ERA/ERME General Manager Olivier de Blois, who has returned to France with his family. Executive Relocations’ Board thanks Olivier for his years of dedication, and have expressed confidence that Rene will continue the company’s growth in the dynamic markets of Africa and the Middle East.

Rene is highly qualified in business management, and holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of South Africa as well as a Post Graduate Certificate in Compliance Management from the University of Cape Town.

Previously the Managing Director for a wealth management company in Nairobi, she has also delivered strategic direction through executive roles in an insurance brokerage in Cape Town – first as its Financial & HR Manager, and later as General Manager.

We wish Rene all the best, and know that she will be well supported by Executive Relocations’ team of relocation professionals!
