Daouda Mbow, CEO of the New Vision of the Automobile Married to a woman and father of three children, the businessman who stopped his studies very early in CM2 worked several trades before finding his way. He was successively salesman “Kéthiakh” and “Guédje” before getting into the automobile, where he started as a car washer, “clando” driver, mechanic and parts seller. Originally from Mbacké and Kaolack, from a modest family, David as his relatives call saved his meager income for years so that he could buy his first car a Renauld R 20 in 1994. This is the beginning of a great adventure. Despite the difficulties encountered in his early days, the man who is an ace at the wheel and mechanics was quick to find the idea that will make him a great business man.
A big car enthusiast, he modified his car to participate in stunt competitions organized at the time by Lebanese daddy’s sons. He managed to impress them with techniques of which he is the only one to hold the secret. That’s how he was offered a good price for his car. He had just completed his first good business and this activity was quick to bear fruit. The young man had just found his way. The man who today has become a billionaire through hard work is considered modest. “Despite his wealth, he has always remained the same man. At lunchtime he eats with his employees (guards, car washers and others) and says it reminds him of where he comes from, “said one of his childhood friends.
Today it is he who sells luxury cars to almost all the personalities of the country, businessmen, politicians, singers, footballers … “He has the gift of business, he sometimes takes the risk of ‘buy some cars too expensive but, he still manages to resell them. He has a blessed hand, “maintains one of his friends, a great host of the place, to continue” he was the one who gave me my first car, he also gave cars to many celebrities “. That said, the CEO of NVA does not go unnoticed because he drives today a two-door Mercedes CL63 AMG that costs more than 200,000Euro.
The young billionaire is also evolving in real estate. It has luxury apartments and villas in the upmarket districts of Dakar. Many artists are filming their clips in his private apartments. He also rents them to large hotels and personalities who come to stay in Dakar. This example of African success proves to the world that one can be a native of Senegal, grow up in Senegal, work in Senegal and succeed more than those who go abroad. He is part of the generation of Senegalese who believe in their person and in the cult of work. This brave son of Senegal, not only intends to limit himself to the sale of cars and real estate, he intends to develop other activities of which he deprives himself of any comment. And all this to allow young people in Senegal to work in their country to provide for their families while retaining all their dignity. As the wise man said, only work pays and merit is always rewarded.
