Dr. Edwin Hertzog, Chairman of Mediclinic said
"We are pleased that Jurgens has agreed to join the Board of Mediclinic as CFO. We have known Jurgens for many years: when he was at Standard Bank he worked on a number of major Mediclinic corporate transactions and this has given him a valuable insight into the Company.
"His recent experience as the Chief Financial Officer at Datatec, a geographically diversified and dual listed international company, will position him well for his new role at Mediclinic."
