NICO treats executive golfers to South Africa trip

NICO Group has delivered its promise of flying winners of it’s The ONE Executive Golf Challenge on an all-expenses-paid golf trip to South Africa.

As part of its 50th anniversary celebrations, NICO Group held golf tournaments in October and November 2021 in Blantyre and Lilongwe respectively. The tournaments were a platform that enabled NICO Executives to interact with various business officials outside the Group.

 A team led by NICO General Chief Executive Officer, Donbell Mandala, emerged the overall winner and were awarded the all-expenses-paid trip.

Mandala described the trip as an enjoyable experience for him and his two team members – Samson Mwale and Nestor Msowoya.

“We had an enjoyable weekend. The golf tournament, the scenery, and the game drive were absolutely beautiful,” Mandala said.

He added that the trip was also a perfect opportunity to interact with executives from outside Malawi.

“Golf presents an opportunity for networking. We played with different people and have been able to form long lasting relationships that will benefit our businesses”, Mandala added.

Sam Mwale reiterated Mandala’s sentiments, adding that NICO has set the tone for celebrations in Malawi.

“This was a wonderful experience. We enjoyed ourselves and the opportunity this presented for us to engage with other golfers in South Africa,” Mwale said.

The team played golf on the Rustenburg Golf Course on 26 March and on Gary Player Golf Course on 27 March followed by a game drive at Center Bay.

NICO Group has ran activities to commemorate its 50th anniversary since 2021 and has committed to continue being The ONE financial solutions provider that secures lifetime experiences. This commitment was echoed during its grand 50th gala in Blantyre on 18th March this year.
