Title: Co-Founder/CEO
Bio:
Born and raised in Kenya, I feel fortunate to have been able to call 8 countries home before returning to my father’s home country of Uganda in 2008. After a successful career in advertising, I left my desk job to become the co-founder and CEO of KadAfrica. Prior to KadAfrica, I began my own advertising agency and worked with clients such as Air Uganda, Shoprite Supermarkets, and Stanbic Bank; I now filter these marketing skills to the sale of passion fruit, where I have successfully established export markets in the UK as well as to major hotels, supermarkets, and wholesalers throughout Uganda. I am passionate about encouraging youth entry into agriculture, and believe that young people can capitalize on Uganda’s natural resources as a viable alternative to the more common rural-to-urban migration.
