I am an experienced business development professional with demonstrated success working in the global energy industry, civil construction, infrastructure and ICT. My commercial capabilities were developed in a technical services environment, but are applicable to the services business in general. I am part of an extensive network of experts in doing business in Africa as well as Commercial and Business Development leaders.
I have grown to be passionate about working in Africa and have developed a high level of cultural awareness, supported by exceptional language skills. My mission is to achieve a balance between commercial sustainability and the UN SDG’s, for instance by living up to local content commitment. Knowledge transfer and coaching comes naturally.
Gushikama is the word in Kinyarwanda for integrity, resolution and perseverance. Kinyarwanda is the language spoken in Rwanda, the country of a thousand hills, in the very heart of the African Continent.
