International Banking Services won the award for best support services. Monique Venter from Enterprise Risk Management Department received the Service Excellence Award while Derek Sansom from Capricorn Private Wealth won the Bank Windhoek MD Award for Sales Excellence.
“I am exceptionally pleased with the performance of Bank Windhoek citizens,” said Bank Windhoek’s Managing Director, Baronice Hans. “To win in the marketplace you must first win in the workplace and therefore an awards evening like this, to give reward and recognition to those who excelled, is an important part of our organisational culture.”
Capricorn Group’s Lead: Core Banking, Chris Hoeseb, received the Capricorn Group CEO Award for Leadership while the IT Organisation department received the award for the best group function.
Capricorn Group’s CEO, Thinus Prinsloo congratulated the winners and said: “Two things really stood out for me this year – firstly, great people across the group, embraced the opportunity to step up, pull together and deliver an impactful result. Secondly, our diversification strategy is paying dividends – this year was exceptional in the sense that all the subsidiaries delivered very good results across the board, simultaneously lifting the performance of the Group to record highs”.
