Broll Namibia recently entrusted Sylvia Ndapewa Ekandjo to be its property administrator. She said she is highly motivated and an adaptable individual with a passion for the property industry. This resonates deeply throughout her career trajectory. She has been with Broll Namibia for six years, starting as a data capturer in 2017.

Ekandjo said Broll Namibia made her knowledgeable of the most crucial components of the property industry – legal and regulatory frameworks in the various aspects of property management.

“Broll Namibia’s values align with my own. I was voted a value star twice. I enjoy working for them.”



Navigating various roles

Inspired by the opportunity to play a key role in managing Broll Namibia’s valuable property assets, Ekandjo has swiftly navigated through different roles. After data capturing, she spent over five years as a marketing assistant. This gave her a holistic understanding of the industry’s various facets – from data capturing and marketing to property administration.

“My new position has expanded my scope, allowing me to apply my accumulated skills more broadly,” she said.

As a data capturer, she was responsible for inputting and maintaining data from the mall competitions or campaigns temporarily. When she got promoted to marketing, she spearheaded the compilation of comprehensive marketing strategies. This, she said, was in line with their brand objectives and research results on an annual basis.

She contributed to the implementation of the corporate social investment (CSI) strategy and managed all marketing, public relations, administrative functions and their social media platforms.

In addition to her new role as a property administrator, she serves as the executive support for the senior management team. She is also responsible for Broll Namibia’s managed properties, public relations and marketing, including digital marketing.

“I manage property portfolios and oversee day-to-day operations. I also handle tenant inquiries, maintain property records, and facilitate property maintenance.”



Supportive culture, vision and advice

Ekandjo said it was Broll Namibia's supportive culture that played a pivotal role in her professional development. In addition to opportunities for growth and mentorship, the company constantly allowed her to take on new challenges.

This, she said, helped her develop strong analytical, negotiation and problem-solving skills.

“I am also part of a team of talented and supportive colleagues,” she said.

Looking ahead, Ekandjo envisions a property industry increasingly driven by data and technology while placing a strong emphasis on sustainability and environmental responsibility.

The property administrator’s advice to young professionals looking to climb the corporate ladder is: “Be passionate about what you do. Be willing to learn and grow. Be proactive and take initiative. Build strong relationships with colleagues and mentors. Be confident in your abilities. Cultivate independent problem-solving before bombarding your superiors with questions. Remember, Google is your best friend!”
