Katiti clinches IPM CEO of the Year accolade
The Chief Executive Officer of the Namibia Institute of Pathology, Augustinus Katiti, was awarded the Institute of People Management CEO of the Year award, at a ceremony that took place at Hilton Hotel, ending the 7th Annual IPM Conference.
The IPM CEO/MD of the Year recognises CEO’s/MDs for their contribution to Human Resources. For Human Resources to be successful in any organisation, senior management buy-in is critical. The award is therefore bestowed to the CEO/MD who acted as an ambassador to promote strategic people management in the executive community at their institutions.
In his acceptance speech, Katiti thanked IPM Namibia for the recognition and attributed his success to all the employees at NIP and importantly his wife.
In other awards, Lea Namholo from the Bank of Namibia walked away with the IPM HR Director of the Year, MTC with the IPM HR Centre of Excellence, CRAN with the corporate employing most students/interns and Rodney Guiseb from Engen with the IPM HR Partner of the Year.
The two day annual IPM Conference has been described as a resounding success according to IPM President, Tim Ekandjo. “I am grateful that we could gather over 150 HR experts to discuss pertinent HR matters that will benefit the country’s people development agenda” said Ekandjo.
IPM was sponsored by MTC as platinum sponsor, NEPC as print media sponsor and Renaissance Health and Prosperity as silver sponsor.
