Summary


Hiring Managers,

I am a career management, marketing, communication and sales professional with result driven and entrepreneurial mindset, with over 10+years of Global and Sub-Saharan Africa experience in none profit and for profit companies. I bring in a wealth of experience with managing and leading projects for many international businesses with operations in Africa headquartered abroad.

I have the customer facing skills and knowledge to operate in Africa successfully with my understanding for a growing but challenging Emerging Market. With a self-starter attitude who motivates and build teams for consistency, improve profitability, re-position brands for attractiveness again. I am a steady head under pressure and comfortable in fast pace, multicultural and unstable work environment dealing with both strategic and operational challenges.

With vast understanding in strategic planning, corporate sales, strategic marketing, customer/consumer experience; project management and commercial expansion in different industries. I also have extensive background knowledge of the Africa continent in the following industries; Marketing & Sales, Telecommunications, None Profit, Specialty chemicals, Logistics, Hospitality, automotive, Education Management and Manufacturing.

I am now interested in companies already expanding or are looking to move but with genuine interest in Sub-Saharan Africa. A company that sees the continent as a driving force in the global economy. I want to contribute to both operational and strategic aspect of the next company.
