Bank Windhoek gets brand recognition

By Business Reporter

BRAND Africa has announced Bank Windhoek as Namibia’s most admired local financial services brand. Brand Africa’s founder, Thebe Ikalafeng shared the news at an annual leadership event hosted virtually. The event unveiled the leading brands in Africa for 2020/2021.

Bank Windhoek’s executive officer of marketing and corporate communication services, Jacqueline Pack, welcomed the recognition saying that this was the bank’s first Brand Africa Leadership recognition.

“As a relationship-driven, wholly-owned Namibian brand focused on making a positive impact on the communities in which we operate, we celebrate this award with our customers and staff,” Pack further said.

In its eleventh year, Brand Africa Leadership recognition is based on a comprehensive, respected survey conducted by GeoPoll, a pioneer in remote, mobile-based research in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Inspired by the African Union Agenda 2063 towards an integrated, peaceful, and prosperous Africa, Brand Africa was established in 2009 to drive trade across the African continent and grow African economies.

Over the past five months, Bank Windhoek won various national and international awards. Of these, two were awarded by the International Business Magazine Awards, recognising the bank’s managing director, Baronice Hans, the Year’s Best Banking Chief Executive Officer. The other named Bank Windhoek, the Best Corporate Bank in Namibia for 2021.

“At Bank Windhoek, we appreciate the recognition. It affirms our purpose of being connectors of positive change through helping individuals and communities reach their potential,” concluded Pack.
