It is nearly the anniversary of the launch of Capital Insurance Group (CIG) branch in Kokopo for servicing the wider NGI region. To celebrate this milestone as well as the outstanding business growth in the NGI region, CIG Group Chief Operations Officer (COO) Mr. Roger Baweja invited local business owners, respected government officials, and key clients to join the CIG team at their office for a cocktail event.
The management of this region continues to develop under the leadership of CIG Branch Manager – Ms. Julie Lupai.
CIG is pleased to continue the partnership with Ms. Victoria Waniara as its Kimbe based agent in West New Britain (WNB) servicing local clients and businesses. Ms. Waniara has supported CIG in extending key networking opportunities within the WNB township.
Additionally, CIG is also pleased to introduce Ms. Janet Watai operating in Kokopo. Ms. Watai is an accountant (CPA) offering support to local businesses with a commercial insurance focus within the NGI region.
On Friday 14 October CIG held a key client event to celebrate its growth story within the NGI region for the past year. The event highlighted the work done by Ms. Julie Lupai which included the employment of an additional staff member (Mr. Roland Kasiau Meli), the signing of a local medical service provider, and the addition of new authorized agents in Kimbe and Kokopo.
These further cement CIG’s promise to support the local businesses and communities in this region through tailored insurance solutions. Group COO Mr. Roger Baweja was present for the event and assured the clients that Capital’s mission is to enrich lives, businesses, and communities of Papua New Guineans wherever we operate. Having a branch in NGI region is a key part of this commitment. Mr. Baweja further highlighted the importance of diversity and that at CIG, approximately 64% of our employees are women and that CIG is 100% PNG owned.
CIG’s commitment was on display with Mr. Baweja being accompanied by the Kokopo Branch manager, Ms. Julie Lupai, CIG Head of Marketing, Ms. Mele Numa, and CIG’s Channel Partner, Ms. Pamela Taligatus all being females and adding to the PNG’s success story.
CIG takes its responsibility to contribute to its local community seriously. This is achieved by way of local partnerships and/or local support initiatives. To deliver this commitment, CIG recently assisted St. Mary Hospital during a fundraiser event and committed to partner in similar future events. CIG’s focus is to look beyond insurance and contribute towards enriching our (PNG) way of life
The visit was an opportune time to also do team bonding with the Kokopo office staff outside the office setting. More updates on this will be shared in our BeConnect newsletter.
