Klippie joined the South African Revenue Service (SARS) in 1989, and then worked for Barclays, Standard Chartered and Nedbank from 2004 until he joined CMI in 2014. His banking career included various back office responsibilities within STF interfacing and working with collateral managers and clients. He also became an input finance specialist, specifically in Zambia and South Africa. Klippie understands commodity risk and how CMA services assist financiers to address these risks within their STF banking products. Being responsible for audits on collateral managers and operational risk made the move to CMI a natural progression in his career. He now controls all our operations in Central Africa. Klippie is well-respected throughout the banking and commodity industries and has worked with several well-known individuals in the industry.
