Client Services Manager – South Africa
Leelah is the anchor that keeps our business on track and everything running smoothly from day to day. Calm under pressure and extremely self-disciplined, she offers support to the wealth managers, runs the administration of the South African-based office and deals with any client enquiries.
Born and bred in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, Leelah achieved qualifications in marketing, banking and insurance – passing both with distinction. In her first role at Dynarc Investment & Insurance Brokers, she gained valuable experience in the intricacies of insurance, financial planning and pensions, and proceeded to train as a financial adviser, managing a small client base of her own. Here she also met her future colleague, Rene Lans.
Next Leelah worked at PSG Konsult, where she offered regional support to a group of financial advisers and continued to train as a financial consultant. During her time at PSG, she also dabbled in a bit of radio journalism by regularly reading the financial news on OFM (a regional radio station). She joined the London Private Wealth team in 2013.
She enjoys working with a vast array of clients, from all walks of life, believes strongly in teamwork and putting in what you expect to get back in return.
When she’s not running a tight ship at London Private Wealth, she enjoys the outdoors, experimenting in the kitchen and spending time with friends and family.
