Our Global Footprint
Uwin Iwin – South Africa: “Uwin Iwin was born from a burning passion to make a difference to people’s lives in the workplace and to unleash the potential that business in South Africa has to offer in order to compete with the best in the world” and spread our Footprint to Nigeria, India and UK.
Uwin Iwin was born from a burning passion to make a difference to people’s lives in the workplace, and to unleash the potential that businesses in South Africa have to offer in order to compete with the best in the world. In 1994, the CEO of the company, David Sand, left the corporate world for an entrepreneurial journey of a lifetime, and with a severance package under his arm, Uwin Iwin was formed.
The company started out as a specialist provider of travel incentive solutions and grew by natural progression into the reward and recognition space as well as the incentives space, with a significant amount of convergence between the two. From there the events and conferencing division was formed with a full marketing and communications support function. Uwin Iwin proudly offers companies an end-to-end incentive solution: from measurements strategy, reward mechanisms, communication campaigns and launch events to travel incentives and a rewards catalogue. Our team of experts delivers results, on time and on budget.
Uwin Iwin India was the very first of the international ventures and a bold move to open operations in Bangalore late 2011 to grow our footprint. Uwin Iwin CEO, David Sand, established the business and operations in line Uwin Iwin’s capacity and expertise as a developing economy specialist.
We currently service local Indian clients and act as a fulfilment partner for two major European and UK based incentive agencies.
Concerning India, Uwin Iwin CEO, David Sand, writes “As one of the world’s most populous emerging economies, and as a major trading partner with Africa, this exciting and vibrant economy presents great opportunities as markets formalize and new distribution channels are forged. As a global brand, Uwin Iwin proudly offers Indian companies an end-to-end incentive solution: from measurements strategy, reward mechanisms, communication campaigns and launch events to travel incentives and a rewards catalogue. Our team of experts delivers results, on time and on budget.
Uwin Iwin Nigeria, our second country added to our footprint, was established in December 2013. Adeshola Ekpo, a strong and proud Nigerian woman, heads up the operations in Lagos. Her passion for her country, and her belief that the city of Lagos is the centre for excellence in Africa, has been vital for the growth of the business.
As the biggest population and economy in Africa, we have no doubt that our Nigerian business is set to become one of the most rapid-growing offices as it will be the hub for activities in West Africa.
As of 27 June 2017, Uwin Iwin Incentives UK LTD was opened for trade in the United Kingdom Market. This is a further expansion to an already impressive network of global offices and our footprint.
Uwin Iwin Incentives LTD is an international company providing inspirational recognition and reward, incentive, loyalty and performance improvement solutions to businesses. The company has offices in South Africa, India, Nigeria, and now London.
The company CEO, David Sand, says the opening of the new office is incredibly exciting to him because the UK is one of the biggest and most exciting incentive loyalty and incentive markets in the world. “We are humbled and excited about this new chapter in our business. We have been dealing with Northern hemisphere based business and it just makes sense to be more accessible to our clients.”
David emphasises Uwin Iwin’s reward model of branded cash which will differentiate the company from the reward scheme competitors in the UK. “Most reward programmes make use of catalogues from which rewards can be chosen. Our data has shown that employees prefer the flexibility of deciding for themselves how to spend their rewards.”
This unique reward system will give Uwin Iwin the edge in the European market.
