Africa50 appoints CEO
The Pan-African infrastructure investment platform Africa50, which is funded by the African Development Bank (AfDB), has appointed Kenyan-born Carole Wamuyu Wainaina as CEO.
She will lead a multidisciplinary team on the noninvestment side of the organisation, including investor relations, strategy, communications, human resources and administration, and environmental and social governance.
“Wainaina has substantial private sector experience and recognised global organisational leadership and team building skills.
“This will be critical as we continue to build Africa50 into a high-performing investment platform for infrastructure project development and investment in Africa, with a diverse group of investors – from African governments to the private sector,” AfDB president Akinwumi Adesina said.
