Gondwana welcomes new Managing Director

Manni Goldbeck, outgoing MD, passes the baton to Gys Joubert

Gys Joubert has taken over from Manni Goldbeck as the new Managing Director of Gondwana Collection Namibia.

Joubert holds two Masters degrees in law and has 10 years experience in the banking sector. He had served on Gondwana’s Board of Directors for a year prior to his appointment as MD.

“In my eyes, Gondwana is a phenomenal brand in the Namibian market and Manni Goldbeck, founder and MD for the past 21 years, is an icon in the tourism industry. In this light, it is extremely humbling and a massive honour for me to take on this position. I’m very glad, however, that I don’t have to fill Manni’s shoes. I’ll find my own individual path. And as Manni will remain with the company as the Brand and Marketing Director, I will have the honour and privilege of his guidance, as well as the guidance and support of the rest of the Gondwana team,” said Joubert.
