Join Dr Morris Mthombeni, GIBS Interim Dean in Conversation with Seelan Gobalsamy, Omnia Group CEO.

About the speaker:

Seelan Gobalsamy has an established record of managing complex businesses successfully. Throughout his career, he has demonstrated his ability to redefine strategic direction, turn around businesses and deliver sustainable growth by building strong and cohesive teams. He is an internationally experienced business leader with vast financial services experience.

Seelan has served in various senior and executive leadership roles across emerging markets for almost 20 years, working at numerous blue-chip companies including Old Mutual, Liberty Holdings as CEO of the corporate division and later CEO of Emerging Markets as well as STANLIB as Group CEO. Seelan started at Omnia as a Non-executive Director in 2018 and then became Group Financial Director early in 2019. He was appointed Group CEO soon after - tasked with spearheading the Group’s turnaround strategy at a time when Omnia found itself in a position of immense financial turbulence. 

His conviction is that making a difference in people’s lives (customers, employees, partners, and communities) is what ultimately creates value for all stakeholders. He is passionate about building meaningful connections with people (empowering them and supporting their growth); effecting positive social change, driving sustainability, innovation, and forward-thinking; building world-class businesses; and furthering Africa’s potential. Seelan currently also serves as a Non-Executive Director at Bidvest Life Ltd and JSG Capital, the company he founded.
