Since joining the Namibian Ports Authority as Manager of Corporate Communications, Liz Sibindi’s career has taken to the stars. She established a soled reputation as public relations manager working for the City of Windhoek for many years before joining Namport.

The Manager of Corporate Communications at the Namibian Ports Authority, Ms Liz Sibindi, has been elected to represent her employer on a regional as well as an international communications body.
Sibindi joined the Namport team little over 15 months, and already she has made her mark in the industry. She was earlier elected as Chairperson of the Port Management Association of Eastern and Southern Africa (PMAESA) Communications Committee in 2011, and recently appointed as Member of the Communication and Community Relations Committee of the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH).
Wearing her PMAESA hat, she had to focus on providing its member`s with a chance to exchange ideas and information through conferences, workshops and media interfaces in matters related to transport and trade facilitation. She also assisted members to modernize their systems to enhance productivity and service delivery. She had to create and maintain relations with other development partners, regional, sub-regional, international organizations and transport authorities and oversaw mutual projects and studies. Finally she helped to facilitate the implementation of International Maritime Organization (IMO) conventions and programmes.
Now as a IAPH member, she has to strengthen relationships among the member ports by facilitating interaction, dialogue, problem-solving and formulation of best practices. This she does by leveraging member expertise through strong technical committees and programmes that create platforms to resolve complex port and maritime concerns.
