Woman CEO appointed - Cape Town

First ever woman CEO appointed to major city law firm in Cape Town

Herold Gie Attorneys, established in 1894 and one of the Cape Town’s most respected law firms, has appointed top property attorney Linda Jordaan as its CEO, successor to Richard Moffat, with effect from March 2007.

Jordaan practices as a property lawyer at the firm, where she has been a director for 11 years and served on the executive committee for the last 6 years. She is the first woman CEO to be appointed at the firm and is described by her peers as a progressive thinker, a perfectionist who pays attention to detail, and as an astute businesswoman with an inclusive management style but with the strength to make decisions.

“I believe that the biggest challenge facing any law firm, is the need to adapt the business to meet modern industry trends, whilst retaining the integrity of the firm and providing personal and professional service to clients who form the cornerstone of your business. I look forward to continuing with the initiatives and projects begun by my very able predecessor, Richard Moffat” comments Jordaan.

Jordaan brings further energy and drive to the management of the firm, which has built its reputation on a solid foundation of expertise and excellent service.
