HEAD OF BUYER LED VALUE CHAINS

Overview

I believe buyer-led value chains are crucial to driving economic development and job creation.

Overseeing several industrial clusters, I work with retailers and manufacturers, as well as national, provincial and local governments to power the profitable and sustainable growth within buyer-led value chains. With a background in Economics and business consulting, I have experience in developing national and local industrial development policies, executing large-scale, multi-year supplier development programmes and Quick Response implementation.
