A new era at Pragma: Scott Gibson appointed CEO Designate

After an illustrious 34-year tenure as co-founder and CEO of the Pragma Group, Adriaan Scheeres has announced his retirement, marking the end of an era characterised by innovation, growth, and global impact. Adriaan’s leadership has been instrumental in transforming Pragma into a premier enterprise asset management company with a distinguished clientele across the globe. As he steps down from his role, Adriaan leaves a legacy of excellence and a solid foundation upon which the company can continue to thrive. 

Following Adriaan’s retirement, Pragma is delighted to announce the appointment of Scott Gibson as the CEO designate. Scott brings a wealth of experience and a proven track record of success in the corporate world. His journey from his early days in Cape Town to his extensive career at prominent firms such as Deloitte and Dimension Data has equipped him with invaluable insights and expertise, making him an ideal candidate to lead Pragma to its next chapter. 

Scott’s impressive career trajectory is a testament to his leadership abilities and strategic vision. Scott has consistently demonstrated his ability to drive growth and deliver results from his role in leading the Dimension Data listing on the London Stock Exchange to his tenure as CEO of the Britehouse Group. His passion for innovation and commitment to excellence align seamlessly with Pragma’s values, making him the perfect choice to guide the company forward. 

Upon officially assuming the CEO role on July 1st, Scott will be entrusted with building upon the strong foundation Adriaan and the Pragma leadership team laid. His goal is to chart new paths for growth and success while maintaining a steadfast commitment to client-centricity and operational excellence. Scott’s leadership philosophy, centring around fostering a collaborative and innovative culture, is poised to propel Pragma to even greater heights in the coming years. 

Beyond his professional achievements, Scott is a devoted family man with diverse interests. His love for cycling, running, wildlife photography, and golf speaks to his adventurous spirit and zest for life. His dedication to his family and community reflects his integrity and compassion values, which will undoubtedly guide his leadership at Pragma. 

With the transition period commencing, we thank Adriaan for his outstanding contributions and extend our warmest welcome to Scott as he embarks on this exciting journey with Pragma. With the support of our dedicated team and loyal clients, we look forward to a future filled with innovation, growth, and continued success under Scott’s leadership.
