The Board of the Namibian Ports Authority is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Andrew Kanime as the Chief Executive Officer of the Authority. The appointment is effective the 1st of November 2020 and is for a five-year term.
Mr Kanime holds a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA), an Honours degree in Accounting and Finance as well as three undergraduate qualifications in the fields of Business Management, Human Resources and Public Administration. His broad set of academic qualifications, complemented by the extensive corporate and leadership experience which he has gathered over the years in the banking, telecommunications, broadcasting, energy, transport and logistics sectors, places him in a very strong stead to steer the Namport ship over the coming years.
Mr. Kanime is currently employed by the FirstRand Namibia Group as the Chief Human Capital Officer. He has operated at Executive Management level over the past 17 years and has also held several senior management positions and directorships, which inter alia, include being the Acting Director General at the Namibian Broadcasting Corporation. He presently serves as a non-Executive Director for NamPower and just retired from the NBC Board. He also served on the Board of Namport for nine years, during which period he cut his strong understanding of, and experience within, the transport and logistics industry.
On behalf of the Board, Management and Staff of Namport, I wish to welcome Mr Kanime to the Namport family and aboard the Namport ship. We pledge our support to him and are confident that with his immense knowledge and experience, we will continue on our course to making Namport and Namibia the gateway of choice into the region and beyond.
By Order of the Board
Adv. Gerson Hinda, Chairperson: NamPort Board of Directors
