Martinique Triskey was born and raised in Windhoek where she also matriculated. Her first permanent job after completing school was at MultiChoice Namibia (MCN). She left the company for a year, returned a year later and since then she has been a part of the goal-driven company for almost ten years now.

Triskey is a logistics and distribution manager and the job entails procuring and managing the dispatching of stock.

“I have to make sure that all regulatory type approvals are done timeously to make sure MCN can import the required equipment needed,” she says. One of the challenges in her job is having trucks deliver stock on time.

“When things are out of your control, they become very challenging,” she adds.

Triskey also ensures that there are no stock losses or outages. It is her responsibility to make sure that there is enough stock available and to check what needs to be replenished.

“I also make sure stock orders are fulfilled to customers and the correct quantity of equipment is dispatched to all our agents and branches across the country,” she says.

During her free time, she loves motorcycling with her husband. “This activity makes me feel free and gives me time to clear my mind,” she adds.

What inspires her is knowing that she does a good job, be it at work or home, and being acknowledged for something she has done well.

The advice she would give to aspiring young people out there is to pursue what they want and not let others decide their future. “If you apply your mind to it and you know you can do it, then go for it,” she advises.

She plans to become one of the best logistics and distribution managers this country has ever seen. “People must know my name,” she says boldly.

Flying an aeroplane is one thing she wishes she knew how to do. Triskey mentions that it would be satisfying to know that she is in control and people can trust her with their lives.

Her greatest fear? Not belonging anywhere and not being needed.

When asked about the best phase in her life, Triskey mentions when she started earning her own income, this enabled her to assist others and become independent.

If she was granted an opportunity to change something in the world, she would make abandoning one’s baby, unborn or born, undoable. “It breaks my heart to see and hear about mothers abandoning their babies,” Triskey adds.
