Peter boon

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.

  • Strong international network in private and public sector
  • Liaison between Europe and Africa
  • Trusted advisor and coach
  • Over 30 years of international business experience

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.
