September 2013
With our Annual Function behind us, we say goodbye to a very busy second quarter at Fasset. A special thank-you to all that joined us in celebrating our achievements of the previous financial year and encouraged Fasset to continue on this path.

We are happy to announce that the Minister of Higher Education and Training has appointed the new Fasset Board members, Mathumo Mapaya (a partner at KPMG to the Large and medium-sized accounting, auditing and tax practices seat) and Mauwane Kotane (Director of Mamepe Capital to the Financial Markets seat) effective from August 2013. The vacancies were created by the resignation of Mpuseng Moloi and Seshni Samuel who had represented Financial Markets and Large and medium-sized accounting, auditing and tax practices, respectively.

Kind Regards
Romaana McKinnon
