Borjana Keown has been promoted to head of energy and metals in Nedbank’s global commodity finance team.

Keown replaces Anne-Marie Woolley, who left the company last year. In the interim, global commodity finance head Sekete Mokgehle – to whom Keown reports – had been acting head of the energy and metals division.

Keown first joined Nedbank in 2016, with 21 years in commodities trading and finance under her belt. This included seven years serving as senior executive of marketing at Rand-Asia Trade Finance. From 2014 to 2016, she was a senior transactor at Rand Merchant Bank: during her tenure she was selected as a member of the bank’s China executive committee.
