South African tracking and stolen vehicle recovery company Netstar has appointed Belinda Felix as its new General Manager for Insurance Markets. Felix replaces insurance industry stalwart Justus van Pletzen, who is pursuing business ventures outside of telematics and insurance.

Felix has 19 years’ experience in short-term insurance, having specialised in the fleet, heavy commercial vehicles, and motor and taxi sectors, for which she led the development of insurance and value-add products, among others.
