Despite global uncertainties fueled by the pandemic, we were happy to see continued and reemerging interest in the African potentials towards the second half of the year. We are very grateful for a multitude of new and repeat clients from industries like steel, logistics, chemicals and industrial equipment among others. As our project work expands, our team has also been growing not only in Africa but also in Germany.

We were happy to welcome Lara Rösler who recently joined the team as a working student. She is based in Bremen. She studied business administration and management in her Bachelor at the University of Osnabrück and is completing a Master in business administration at the University of Bremen. Lara will support in the administrative department, mainly in project controlling. Her tasks will include ensuring that the project goals are achieved in our africon quality, as well as within budgets and timeframes.

I am very interested in the African markets and their potential. During my work with africon, I am looking forward to learn more about these potentials, as well as working in an international, highly motivated team. I also look forward to sharing my expertise and ensuring that projects run smoothly in africon“, Lara says.
