Medscheme had promoted its managing director to chief executive, it said yesterday. Kevin Aron, who has served at Medscheme since 2001, will take over next month from acting chief executive Wallace Holmes. Previous chief executive André Meyer left the group in January. Aron will look after the African and international operations in addition to the South African operations he previously oversaw. He is a chartered accountant, and worked at Investec, SA Druggists, Healthcare Management Services and the Medical Services Organisation before joining Medscheme. – Londiwe Buthelezi
