Dave Schwegmann Divisional Executive: Retail and Business Banking Gauteng North Brigitte Ryder Provincial General Manager Gauteng East Nozizwe Tshabuse Provincial General Manager Gauteng Central Linda Mbambo Provincial General Manager Tshwane & North West Mohammed (Salim) Kadoo Provincial General Manager At Nedbank we believe that money has the infinite capacity for good, if you understand the true nature of it. We know that money well managed can make a real difference in people’s lives. And we always take it seriously. For us, being ‘good with money’ means looking at it differently. Finding new and better ways to grow it, invest it, leverage it and manage it for the greater benefit of individuals, businesses and communities. We believe our real reason for being should be using our money expertise to do good, by inspiring you to make better choices with your money. We believe that when we apply our expertise and, more importantly, use it to help you see the effect your money can have, you will experience the difference between money being money and money making a difference.
