Head of Strategy, Business Development and Research at Nedbank Namibia
Wetumwene Shikage
In the dynamic world of banking and finance, Shaun Lahner, recently appointed as Nedbank Namibia's head of strategy, business development and research, embodies innovation and strategic acumen.

Lahner holds over a decade of experience at the forefront of the financial services industry. His journey, marked by significant roles both locally and internationally, is to navigate an era of potential growth and innovation at Nedbank Namibia.

Lahner's professional trajectory has been, in his own words, "an exciting journey, albeit not for the faint of heart".

His background in finance – spanning over a decade – has set him up for a career in the financial services industry. Most recently, he has intentionally moved into sell-side research at a local stockbroker to obtain a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of the trade.

Nedbank says Lahner’s portfolio at Nedbank transcends traditional confines, encompassing a broad spectrum of responsibilities, including idea generation, strategic planning and driving business development initiatives.

At the core of Lahner's vision for Nedbank is a commitment to understanding the business in depth and harnessing strategic thought for sustainable growth. He emphasises the importance of not only collaborating with talented individuals and developing strategies that align with the company's values but also contributing significantly to the betterment of stakeholders and Namibia as a whole.



Deep understanding

His approach to strategy includes focusing on diversification, digital transformation and client-centricity.

Lahner’s insights into the banking sector extend beyond corporate strategies. He is an advocate for financial literacy and inclusion. A press release shared by Nedbank states that his leadership style reflects a deep understanding of the industry's dynamics, prioritising client experience, a duty to maintain ethical practices, and continuous learning.

Balancing his high-powered role with his personal life, Lahner finds solace in spending time with loved ones, exercising, travelling and indulging in intellectual pursuits. He draws inspiration from various sources, including his formal studies, documentaries, and books like 'The End of Money and The Age of Menace', by David Buckham, Robyn Wilkinson and Christiaan Straeuli.
