Corridor group welcomes new business development manager for Zambian market
The Walvis Bay Corridor Group (WBCG) team this week announced the appointment of a new Business Development Manager for Zambia, James Kaposa, as of 01 March this year.
Kaposa said that many players in the industry have grown accustomed to using the traditional ports, however adapting to change quickly, he said is vital to ensure sustained business growth and maintain a competitive advantage.
With experience in Sales and Marketing in the Import and Export Industries, Kaposa is of the opinion that the Zambian Market needs more exposure to the Port of Walvis Bay.
“Opportunities exist within the Zambian market for both importers and exporters and with exerted efforts, the preference for using the Port of Walvis Bay, can be escalated,” Kaposa said on the market he represents.
He boasts experience with one of the largest sustainable Tilapia Fish Farm Companies in Africa, Lake Harvest. He said he has a keen interest to merge and involve past and present contacts to benefit from the new opportunities offered by the Walvis Bay Port and its corridors.
Kaposa said that there is a lot of leaning to the Port of Dar es Salaam, however he is confident that this can be turned around in favour of Walvis Bay.
“Being well aware of competing ports and bringing in added revenue by opening new business opportunities for the business is the prime focus,” he added.
Having previously lectured in Advertising and Public Relations, Kaposa is excited about the contributions he can make. In turn, this renewed energy at its Zambia Office, leaves the Walvis Bay Corridor Group looking forward to the positive outcome within the Zambian market.
