Yvette  Nowell, Senior Associate

Yvette Nowell is the Head of the Rand Merchant Bank fund. The common denominator in Yvette’s employment history has been her creative spark, analytical approach and ability to connect with many different people. High school teaching (1996 – 2003) helped her to hone her organizational and interpersonal skills, before three years in the Arts NGO sector, which laid the foundation for her transition into the bridging space between business, NGO's and schools. She qualified as a facilitator and assessor of learning before co-creating a pilot programme that connected and facilitated business and NGO counterparts through mentorship for 10 months at the Gordon Institute of Business Science.


In 2007 she joined Rand Merchant Bank (RMB), and has headed the RMB Fund since 2009. She was recruited onto the leadership team of RMB Corporate Marketing in October 2014, is an active member and Deputy Chair of the RMB Employment Equity committee and consults to RMB’s innovation programme team.
