Black Management Forum sings Marcus’ praises


Eulogies for outgoing South African Reserve Bank Governor Gill Marcus continue pouring in. In a statement the Black Management Forum has called her a remarkable leader.
“Her leadership is demonstrated by how she has managed to build an amazing pipeline of talent and a truly professional team. She is indeed a remarkable and attuned leader,” the forum says.
“When the history of this country is written, her name will loom large and the BMF wishes her all of the very best in her next phase of the struggle and her continued enormous contribution.”
Marcus’s stewardship of the bank and decisions taken by her and her team during critical times had yet to be fully appreciated, says the forum.
“In all our engagements and interfaces with her and her team, she was always accessible, in time, on point, effective and efficient,” it said.
“The BMF also applauds her for all that she has done to increase transparency of the reserve bank.”
Last week Thursday, Marcus announced she would step down on November 8, at the end of her five-year term.
She made the announcement in Pretoria after a briefing on the monetary policy committee’s repo rate decision.
“This is my last monetary policy committee,” said Marcus at the time.
