“Bank Windhoek remains committed to you in your endeavours to put Namibians into reliable, safe and the most modern vehicles out there,” said Bank Windhoek’s Head: Specialist Finance, Saara Shivute.
“Having said this, I believe that there is always room for improvement. With this in mind, we have taken the initiative to develop and formalise a promotion that we will be sharing with you in the coming weeks. We are confident that this will entice an increase in sales and put Namibians in a position to upgrade to newer models of vehicles they currently own or switch to another brand completely, if they so wish.”
At the same event, Bank Windhoek’s Executive for Retail Banking Services, Chris Matthee said: “We are on the cusp of change in so many areas of life. We are becoming increasingly digitised, customers have more choice, they are becoming less brand loyal and their spending habits have power in the marketplace. And as you in the motoring industry know all too well – as features in modern vehicles become more sophisticated – from safety to those ‘wow’ additions – it all adds to making your industry increasingly competitive. We are experiencing the fourth Industrial Revolution and change is in the air. We need to embrace it, internalise it and move with it.”
