Bank Windhoek rewards northern vehicle industry top achievers

On Wednesday, 22 May 2024, Bank Windhoek recognised the hard work and achievements of salespersons and car dealerships in northern Namibia at its fourth Annual Northern Selekt Sales Awards hosted in Oshakati. The awards continue to celebrate the automotive industry’s commitment to the northern region for the previous financial year, financing vehicles through Bank Windhoek.

Delivering the keynote address, Bank Windhoek’s Head of Stakeholder Engagement, Corporate Social Responsibility and Sponsorships, Bronwyn Moody, said that since the Bank began supporting motor vehicle dealerships in financing vehicle sales in the north, strides in forming relationships were formed with various brands in the marketplace. “Forming these relationships has been good and we commit to doing even more in the future,” she said. “As the only Namibian local bank, our goal is to become the financial service provider of choice with all dealerships in the north, where our deals and promotions stay groundbreaking as they secure record sales for our partnerships.” 

Moody explained that Bank Windhoek focuses on its drive to form lasting and productive partnerships in the future, highlighting that it is possible to love a bank. She said Bank Windhoek does this by having Namibian interests at the heart of its operations.

Achievements in a challenging economy

Abed Wapota, a Sales Executive for Pupkewitz Volkswagen North, received the golden award as the top salesperson of 2023. He said securing sales was challenging, as he observed customers who struggled to acquire deposits but desired to buy vehicles. “Building a relationship with Bank Windhoek consultants has helped me to assist customers in purchasing their vehicles with workable solutions,” he said.

Awarded a silver award in the category of top salesperson of the year, Sales Executive at Indongo Toyota Ongwediva, Nikanor Shindombo, echoed Wapota’s words, saying that 2023 was a challenging year to secure sales but has partnered with Bank Windhoek to reach his targets. “Bank Windhoek was able to offer exceptional service because they understand customers’ needs. This approach is evident as they continuously assist local Namibians in getting proudly behind the wheels of their financed vehicles,” he said.
