Mr Bradshaw has been a key member of the Sanlam organisation, having been involved with the business both here and in the UK for over two decades. He was a hugely supportive and passionate member of the Board and made a significant contribution to Sanlam, as a friend, as a professional and as a greatly admired colleague.
Mr Bradshaw was appointed to the Sanlam Board on 7 August 2013 and served on the Customer Interest, Risk and Compliance as well as the Audit, Actuarial and Finance subcommittees of Sanlam and Sanlam Life.
The founder and former Managing Director and Chairman of Skandia UK Life Assurance Limited, Mr Bradshaw held various Sanlam Group directorships. These included Nucleus Financial Group, where he was Chairman, Sanlam UK Holdings, Sanlam Life and Pensions UK, Sanlam Private Investments and Sanlam Private Wealth Holdings UK.
Speaking on behalf of Sanlam, the Chairman of the Board, Mr Desmond Smith said: “I wish to convey our deep-felt condolences to Paul’s wife Sheila; his children, Christopher and Laura; and his family, friends and associates. He was a valued member of the Sanlam Board who brought a wealth of international experience and offered valuable contributions to the Board and its Committees. He will be sorely missed.”
