JOHANNESBURG, Feb 3 (Reuters) - Insurance group Discovery has hired Deon Marius Viljoen as its new group chief financial officer from financial services group Alexander Forbes , the company said on Friday.

"Deon brings tremendous experience to this role, and will add value to the Discovery team," the company said. (Reporting by Nqobile Dludla; Editing by Keith Weir)
