Mbahupu Tjivikua; CEO of WBCG; "I am most excited about the mandate of the company."

The Walvis Bay Corridor Group (WBCG) has welcomed its new chief executive officer, Mbahupu Tjivikua, who joined the team on 1 October.

Tjivikua has rejoined WBCG after serving as the project manager for the Safe Trade and Transport Corridors project from March 2008 to May 2011.

The new CEO says he is proud to be a part of the growth of WBCG, its positivity and progressivism.

Speaking about his new role, he said: “I am most excited about the mandate of the company. The trade facilitation and business development activities that encourage the increase in cargo volumes for the Namibian ports and the Walvis Bay corridors are exhilarating.”

According to him, international trends and the global economy are fast changing and it is crucial for the WBCG to adapt to these developments.

“I am driven by a sense of urgency and want the company's mandate to be executed in a professional and effective manner.”

Tjivikua has close to 20 years of experience in the corporate sector, with 11 of those years spent in the transport and logistics industry. He was previously the executive for commercial and marketing at TransNamib, also serving in other ­senior roles such as executive of strate­gy and stakeholder management and senior manager of operations.

He holds a Master of Science­ in Operations Management and Leader­ship from the Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) Business School in Massachusetts, USA, and an Honours Degree in Education from Rhodes University, South Africa. He also has a Certificate in Project Management from the University Of Stellenbosch Business School and a Certificate in Financial Management from the Namibia University of Science and Technology.

Referring to himself as a multi-­culturist who has the ability to interact with people from all walks of life, Tjivikua shares his thoughts on those who inspire him: “President Barack Obama's firm leadership style inspires me, as well as President Nelson Mandela's sacrifices for humanity.” He further mentions Myles Munroe's philosophy for life and his wife's strong spirituality as his inspirational motivators.
