PULL QUOTE: “Be passionate about life and what you do.”

Wetumwene Shikage





Prior to working at Pupkewitz Motor Division (PMD), Walter Perestrelo worked in various industries, ranging from telecommunications to hospitality, with over 15 years of management experience.

He is the current branch manager of Pupkewitz Auto 1. Pupkewitz Auto 1 sells diverse quality used vehicles of different brands. He ensures that the right vehicle stock is available to meet customer demands and sells vehicles while guaranteeing optimum customer satisfaction.

Perestrelo was born in the Northern parts of Namibia, in Oshikuku. He matriculated at Centaurus High School and graduated from the University of Namibia with a bachelor degree in computing and economics.

Key aspects

He said a positive culture is key to grow and develop in a company and PMD offers exactly this. “The potential to grow within the company is also a key aspect in making the decision to work for a company,” he said.

He added that having the courage to proactively meet challenges encountered over the past few years makes the stakes higher. “On a personal level and from the business perspective, we have made it thus far and continue marshalling on,” he said.

He said business and life in general boil down to results, and although this shouldn’t be the only metric to look at, he still thinks performance is critical and is a must to succeed.

As part of his future plans, Perestrelo would like to see himself ultimately grow within the group. This led to the advice he gives to the youth to “be passionate about life and what you do”.

When he is not caught up with work, he enjoys a round of golf, and plays soccer on Sundays.
