- Member of the social, ethics and transformation committee in the past year.
The Board has also nominated Ms Neo Mokhesi as Lead Independent Director effective immediately.
Ms Mokhesi was appointed to the Barloworld Board on 1 February 2019. This nomination is in terms

On behalf of the board and Barloworld, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Neo for her
stewardship over the years.”
