Chartered accountant James Mynupe has left Allan Gray asset managers and will start providing President Hage Geingob advice as part of a panel of experts known as the A-Team.

Mynupe had worked for Allan Grey for almost 10 years, first as an equity analyst and later as the managing director for Namibia.

His transition from asset manager to presidential advisor was confirmed by State House press secretary Alfredo Hengari.

“President Geingob wanted the right fit for the job, considering the needs of the country at this difficult time when the Covid-19 global pandemic has impacted and subdued economic activity across the globe, including in Namibia,” Hengari said.

Mynupe's appointment would add strength to the president's advisory team, he said.



Much-needed insight

“Mr Mnyupe will strengthen the presidential advisory team, which has functioned without an economic advisor. He brings much-needed insight and expertise about the catalysing role of the private sector and investments in the process of economic growth.

“In light of his pedigree in the field of economy and investments, he will play a pivotal role in assisting President Geingob in the execution of post-Covid-19 recovery plans for Namibia.” Mynupe holds a bachelor of accounting degree from the University of Namibia, and completed his articles at PricewaterhouseCoopers. He is also a chartered financial analyst.
