Marumahoko to headline FinGaz executive dialogue
INVESTMENT expert, Lionel Marumahoko will feature at the country’s leading business publication, The Financial Gazette, executive dialogue breakfast meeting to be held at the end of this month in Harare.
The meeting, which runs under the topic “Building a US billion-dollar business in Sub-Sahara Africa” seeks to equip business and organisational leaders with critical-to-success leadership insights for sustainable growth and profitability.
In an interview this week, Jester Media Services general manager events Christina Nyirenda-Chimuka said Marumahoko is a highly-successful business leader and innovative corporate visionary.
“He is an expert on doing business and navigating the African continent, having lived and worked in eight different African countries and provided executive leadership to over 36 Sub-Sahara Africa markets in an illustrious corporate career of 25 years with Coca-Cola Company.
“His hands-on knowledge and experience enable him to bring a fresh perspective, actionable insights, and solutions to some of the continent’s stickiest challenges.
“He is passionate about the African opportunity and his talks and insights empower organisations with practical information on how to plan for growth and expansion on the continent.”
Nyirenda-Chimuka said Marumahoko’s business leadership and advisory capacity is leveraged through his work as managing partner and chairman for BPL AFRICACONNECT business consulting firm.
“Here he provides executive leadership in the identification, establishment, and expansion of a high calibre partner and stakeholder network and engaged client base, spanning 50-plus countries. Key engagements include guiding a European communications group in African market entry, leading an African investment group through business transformation, and advising an African conglomerate through IPO readiness,” Nyirenda-Chimuka added.
The FinGaz executive dialogue breakfast meeting is a thought leadership interface that helps drive transformational change among top company executives and business leaders.
As an expert on doing business and navigating the African continent, Marumahoko is expected to offer invaluable insights to local companies keen to tap into the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA).
The AfCFTA is the world’s largest free trade area, bringing together the 55 countries of the African Union and eight regional economic communities.
The overall mandate of AfCFTA is to create a single continental market with a population of about 1,3 billion people and a combined GDP of about US$ 3,4 trillion.
AfCFTA seeks to eliminate trade barriers and boost intra-Africa trade. In particular, it seeks to advance trade in value-added production across all service sectors of the African economy.
