Commenting on his appointment, JC Louw said:

“I’m excited by our new launch, I’ve been in boutique services almost all my life, 18 years to be exact, where Sharenet has been in mass production of financial service information. We are combining the two of a solid track record. This new evolution not only gives our clients access to new products and solutions, we can help Sharenet focus more on the service and delivery.” – JC Louw, Group CEO
