Vincent Kheswa

Nickname: 'Simply Vincent'

Model Implementation Analyst at Standard Bank


Currently resides in: Gauteng, South Africa

Born in Vanderbijlpark South Africa

My career in the banking industry has given me an opportunity for growth in the corporate world, enhancing my knowledge and skills in the industry, as well as moulding my abilities as a leader, a logical and innovative thinker, as well as a tactical problem solver. I am a self motivated individual who serves his spare time hosting motivational sessions for high school learners, as well as extra mathematics classes.

I started as a BMI Student Marketer while I was still in university, which gave me an exposure to liaison with clients, make presentations for large crowds as well as executive board members, and worked on my communication skills.

Having to carry the knowledge of Mathematics to a class of College students, I then became a Lecturer at Sedibeng College. I had to work under a lot of pressure during this time and still be able to deliver good results, as the time given to cover the entire curriculum was not enough, and I still had to do all the administration required, planning lessons and organizing marketing events for the college.

My role as a Project Coordinator/Field Trainer at Maths Centre allowed me to use all that I have learned from Student Marketing and Lecturing, taking it further into project management and coordination.


I am a BSc graduate in Business Mathematics and Informatics (BMI). In addition, I am also a Writer, Poet, Songwriter, Musician.

Testimonials

Lungile Mlangeni

"To whom it may concern,
I confirm that Vincent Kheswa was employed as a Credit Risk Officer by Standard Bank in the Small Enterprise Credit Centre from January 2014 to November 2014. During this time, he was one of my direct subordinates in a team of ten officers.

This position carried the following responsibilities, proactive credit risk management through ensuring that non-performing loan/provision targets are not exceeded and also effectively execute credit risk strategies to enable the day to day operations capability within Small Enterprise to maintain a budgeted Credit loss. In the short period that Vincent was with the team he was such an asset to the team. He portrayed excellent leadership and presentation skills through various projects. Vincent was also very reliable and dependable team member, who not only showed a lot of potential but I believed he was destined for great things.


I would happily re-employ Vincent as I consider him to be a valuable member of the team, who consistently achieved good results and delivers all expectations.

Yours faithfully

Prof. Riaan de Jongh

"I hereby wish to testify as follows about the person and character of Thokozani Kheswa (ID 8904065292083), known to me as Vincent.

I met Vincent during 2006 as a first year Business Mathematics and Informatics (BMI) student at the Vaal Triangle Campus of the North-West University. I was immediately impressed with his positive attitude, interpersonal relationship skills and his leadership qualities. This together with his academic performance earned him an Absa Bursary at the start of 2006. During 2008 he was appointed as the BMI marketer by the Absa Bursary Committee with the task of visiting as many previously disadvantage schools in order to attract students to studies in BMI. In this he excelled, so much so that I can honestly testify that he was the best BMI marketer ever given his success rate. He also did this task with passion and enthusiasm.

Vincent obtained the BSc BMI degree in 2009. This achievement is considerable taking into account that this BSc-degree has about double the credits of an ordinary BSc.

I wish Vincent the best of luck in his career and recommend him for any position that he may apply for.

Louis Maartens

"To whom it may concern.

I Louis Maartens, Credit Manager in the personal as well as Corporate card space in Standard Bank, hereby confirm that Thokozani Kheswa, known to me as Vincent, was introduce to our management team together with all the other graduates in November 2012. Vincent was in my department from November 2012 till April 2013.

From this introduction I was given the opportunity to choose one of the delegates from the team, Vincent with his pleasant down to earth personality, neat attire, immediately struck me and I subsequently choose him to come and assist in my area, as one of my permanent employees was on maternity leave at that stage and we were short of one person.

Vincent’s positive attitude and willingness to learn resulted him to fit in with the rest of the team very quickly and easily. Although the type of work was a total new experience to him he adapted very easily and quickly. He spend some time trading individually with his new team members, who took him through the actions especially in one department namely Re Instatement of personal cards.

Within a matter of days Vincent caught onto the methodology and way these actions are done in the department and he was left to assess and commence with his work individually. In no time he managed to work by himself and actioning the required amount of applications that was expected of him, surpassing his target set very quickly.

Vincent is a very matured and pleasant individual, who can communicate with all levels of people very easily, does not carry an attitude and is down to earth, sometimes perceived as shy, but he is very dedicated and focused on what is required of him to do.

When the pace became rather heavy and we experienced a back log in the department he would out of his own be at work early in the morning to assist rest of the team to try and alleviate any backlog of work, indicative of his very positive attitude and his contribution to rest of the team.

During his time with us he was requested by senior management to put together a presentation of our process which he was assisting with in the department, although finding it a little difficult in the beginning he went back and requested assistance to better the presentation which he did extremely well when presented again the second time.

My observation of Vince is that he will ask assistance when he requires and when he might be unsure of something! Always willing to learn, to allow him to supply superior service, but also very eager to learn new challenges.

He was very pleasant to work with, setting very high standards for himself, and his eagerness to learn and ask questions makes him a great team player to have in any team.

I would not hesitate to appoint and make him permanent in my team should that opportunity arise!

He would be a great asset to any team! Committed, dedicated, and willingness to learn makes him a great person, it was a pleasant experience to have spend some time with him in my team.
