East African Investment Director


Nairobi or Dar es Salaam

I’m currently recruiting for an overseas investment organisation who invest in companies in Sub Saharan Africa. They are now looking for someone to be based in East Africa to head up their investment strategy and portfolio management. Ideally from an investment banking or private equity background I’m looking for someone who has the ability to manage companies post funding and can operate and work with growing or Greenfield entities. It’s vitally important that this person can operate and manage a company post funding, therefore they will need to demonstrate their managerial experience. It’s also vitally important that this person will have substantial network of contacts on the ground in East Africa and will be able to tap into their contacts to find new investments opportunities and assistance with accounting and legal issues. In addition, they will also be hands on with due diligence processes during investment appraisals. My client invests for long term growth and job creation in Africa, they have in incredibly impressive management team and now need to find this key person. Contact me for further information.
