George Watakah joins africon as a Visiting Associate in Kenya
In line with our mission, ‘to be the leading European consulting company delivering solutions for Africa to companies worldwide by 2030’, we are happy to bring on additional in-country or sector-specific professionals from different regions in Africa. East Africa is one of the fastest-growing economic blocs in Africa, and many international companies are interested in the region. We are strengthening our team in East Africa by hiring a new team member, George Watakah, in Nairobi, Kenya.
Kenya is the largest economy in the East African region and the third largest in sub-Saharan Africa. Over the past decade, the country has made remarkable progress in enhancing economic growth. This high level of performance is underpinned by a stable macroeconomic environment, improved security perceptions, and ongoing structural reforms.
George holds a bachelor’s degree in Actuarial Science from the University of Nairobi. After his studies, he worked as a Growth Analyst at Yusudi Limited Africa where his role was to inform key business decisions and drive long-term impact for companies. In his capacity, he gained experience in driving significant and sustainable growth across the business cycle for companies in Kenya. Being a data enthusiast, he gets excited about opportunities where he can turn data into easy-to-digest content & reports for large & small businesses.
‘I am excited to be part of a highly motivated and dynamic team where I will be able to help Africa achieve its enormous potential by building bridges between the continent and the rest of the world’, he says.
So far, George has already started working on a project in the printing industry in Africa and we are delighted to have him on the team.
