WINDHOEK, 07 MAR (NAMPA) Newly-appointed Namibia Airports Company (NAC) chief executive officer, Bisey //Uirab, has vowed to deploy the formula that has brought glory to the Namibian Port Authority when he takes charge of the parastatal on 01 May 2019.
//Uirab made these remarks in an interview with Nampa, shortly after his appointment as NAC CEO on Thursday.
/Uirab attributed his much-talked-about success at Namport to team work, stable leadership and clearly-defined objectives, whereby each player knows explicitly what is expected of them.
He said if the same is applied at the struggling parastatal, success is guaranteed.
We have built a very strong team [at Namport] both in terms of management and staff. So the issue of teamwork is very important and that is what I will try and continue here. Obviously stakeholder engagement with all key customers [and] with the shareholder is key, he said.
On his immediate objectives, /Uirab said he is preoccupied with bringing stability and leadership to the NAC.
In five years time, /Uirab would like to be rated on, among other things, whether or not NAC is finally stable, has the requisite infrastructure in place and whether it is rendering the best service possible to its clients.
Coming from Namport, where political interference is uncommon, /Uirab said he expects the same when he takes charge of NAC.
I am very happy with the undertaking of both ministers [John Mutorwa and Leon Jooste] and the chairperson [Leake Hangala] that all the structures within this partnership must play their part. The minister will do the shareholders representation. The board will give guidance. The management will have to do what they have to do, he said.
