Bank Windhoek has appointed Bets Blaauw as the new branch manager of the Otjiwarongo branch effective from the beginning of this month.
Blaauw has been working in the banking industry since 1980 when she started with Volkskas Namibia, then joined Bank Windhoek in 1993.
Executive officer of the retail banking services, Chris Matthee, says the bank is confident her extensive banking experience will continue contributing towards making Bank Windhoek the preferred bank.
Blaauw has moved through the ranks in various positions and branches of Bank Windhoek and previously held the position of credit manager at the Otjiwarongo branch, until her recent appointment.
