AXIS Fiduciary, a fiduciary service provider in Mauritius, has appointed Johan Brink as its Country Representative Officer in South Africa. 

“Our decision to appoint a representative officer in South Africa reflects the strong belief we have in Africa. With the surge of opportunities in Africa, there’s no doubt that South Africa remains a major economic powerhouse. Our regional expansion to South Africa shows our drive to capitalise on the growth areas, positioning Mauritius as the jurisdiction of choice for routing investment into Africa,” said Assad Abdullatiff, Managing Director of AXIS Fiduciary.

With more than 35 years of experience, Brink is an expert in mergers and acquisitions and general corporate and commercial law. 

He is a specialist in company law, corporate governance and restructuring. 

Before joining AXIS, Brink was a partner and consultant for Webber Wentzel. 

He was also Director and Founder of Brink Cohen LeRoux Inc from 1993 to 2012. 

Since 2002, Brink is Professor in Mercantile Law at the University of South Africa.

He was a member of the Financial Reporting Standards Council in South Africa and of the ad hoc committee on corporate law of the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants. 

He was also a former chair and member of the board of directors of Interlaw, an international association of law firms in over 60 countries and 120 business centres worldwide. 

He has also been recognised by Best Lawyers, Chambers Global, Legal 500 and IFLR as a leading lawyer for many years. 

“Africa remains a fundamental market in the region with strong growth prospects. I am delighted to join the dynamic team of AXIS which has shown considerable momentum over the past ten years. I am excited to work together with this amazing group of people towards the shared vision of accentuating our financial and strategic growth on a regional and international level, whilst facilitating the progress of our networks and successfully pursuing our strategic roadmap in core African markets,” commented Brink.
