Atterbury, the leading South African real estate developer and investor, today announced Armond Boshoff has been appointed to the new position of Deputy CEO of the company from 1 August 2017.

Armond is well versed in Atterbury’s culture and business. In May 2015, he joined as Head: Corporate Finance and Treasury at Atterbury Europe where he was also responsible for mergers and acquisitions. Prior to this, he worked in Rand Merchant Bank’s investment banking division as a dealmaker in the metals and mining space.

Armond holds a BSc (Actuarial and Financial Mathematics) from University of Pretoria, passed associate level examinations of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries,  and recently completed his MBA at University of Oxford – Said Business School.

Louis van der Watt, CEO and co-founder of Atterbury says: “As Atterbury expands both here and abroad, our emphasis has shifted from single property transactions to large corporate deals. For example, the deals that we are currently concluding in Europe. It is of cardinal importance that our leadership should have the expertise to match this. Armond’s corporate background at RMB makes him the ideal candidate.”

The creation of the new position and Armond’s appointment delivers on Atterbury’s commitment to best practice for attracting, retaining and developing excellent talent and leadership for the future. It is a milestone for the company’s good governance, strategic risk management and succession planning, which is designed to create continuity of management and corporate culture for the future.

Commenting on taking up the new position as Deputy CEO of Atterbury, Armond says: “This is an exciting opportunity and challenge. I am looking forward to working closely with Louis and the team at Atterbury, all of whom have excellent knowledge, experience and business acumen. I believe my deal making experience and negotiation skills will be an asset in my new role as part of this humble, hard-working team. I look forward to using these skills in the entrepreneurial framework that is so much a part of Atterbury’s success. Atterbury has created an extremely strong and successful platform over the past 24 years, and I am thrilled to be part of the bright future that lies ahead for the business.”

Over more than 24 years, Atterbury has developed prime office, industrial, retail, mixed-use and residential property across South Africa, the rest of the African continent and, most recently, in Europe.

Atterbury is passionate about development that is a catalyst for growth and improvement in the economy and society. Hallmarks of Atterbury developments, which are designed to be spaces for people to live to their full potential, include a creative environment crafted with elegant architecture, safety and accessibility.
