About

Specializing in turnarounds and reinvigorating growth, I have a passion for building strong leaders and cultures, and am able to balance the ability to execute on short-term results while setting the company on a path to deliver long-term strategic growth. I believe in absolute focus and simplicity and am relentless in the pursuit of the truth, and providing that clarity for my teams. A voracious learner and reader, I am never satisfied unless my teams and I are making a positive impact on our business and community each day. Some recent highlights include: • Improving margins by 4x in South Africa while maintaining +18.5% top-line revenue growth over 2 years. • Delivering positive margins in East Africa for the first time since re-launch. • Planned double digit profitable revenue growth in West Africa after 2 consecutive years of declines and negative margins. • Multiple television and Keynote speaker appearances (CNBC, BBC, CNN, Africa Leadership Dialogues, Talent Agenda Series, Seamless Africa, etc..) • Winner of the Nielsen 2017 Chairman's Award I have a proven track record of success with over 7 years in various senior leadership roles across the African continent, ranging from Chief Operating Officer to Managing Director. I've worked and lived on 3 continents and 5 countries and am looking for my next challenge.
