The Government Institutions Pension Fund (GIPF) has started the process of searching for a new chief executive officer (CEO) to succeed incumbent, David Nuyoma, whose tenure ends in June 2023 after serving in the position for a decade.

A statement issued on Tuesday indicates that the appointment of the new CEO or Principal Officer (PO) will be conducted by the GIPF Board of Trustees and be based on the company’s recruitment, selection and termination policy.

The government parastatal aims to make this process honest, diverting from the rumours of pre-endorsed or selected candidates, said the statement.

“The GIPF is committed to undertaking an objective, fair, open and competitive recruitment process and distances itself from the past social media reports insinuating that there are candidates earmarked for the position,” the statement said, adding that the process will be facilitated by an independent expert recruitment agency and the selection process will be based on efficiency, fairness and transparency.

GIPF then encouraged suitably qualified women and persons living with disabilities to apply.
