The ex-chief executive of Old Mutual in South Africa, Peter Moyo, has resigned from the board of Nedbank with effect from 18 March.
He was appointed in 2018.
Moyo’s resignation from his non-executive role comes amid a protracted legal battle with his former employer over his dismissal in June 2019.
On 18 March 2020, the Johannesburg high court quashed Moyo’s urgent application to stop Old Mutual from looking for a chief executive.
The life company will now be able to find a permanent replacement after winning an appeal in January 2020 that its dismissal of Moyo was lawful.
