africon welcomes Yeni Fowotade to the management team

As africon continues to grow, we have strengthened our management team by adding our newest member, Yeni Fowotade. Yeni is located in Lagos, Nigeria and has worked with africon for 5 years.

Yeni’s appointment reflects the company’s commitment to providing high-quality consulting services to our clients, as africon is poised to solidify its position as the leading consulting firm for European companies interested in Africa.

“We are delighted to welcome Yeni Fowotade to our management team,” says Marc Zander, CEO of africon. “Having successfully delivered over 80 projects, with expertise in strategy development and market research, Yeni has created great value for our clients and supported them with navigating the complex, burgeoning business landscape in Africa.”

Yeni will oversee africon’s West Africa operations and direct the company’s human resources strategy in her new role. She will work closely with the executive team to identify new business opportunities and design and implement operational plans that align with the company’s vision and values. West Africa has immense economic potential, characterized by a rapidly growing consumer market, abundant natural resources, and a vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem. This presents a significant opportunity for africon to support European companies in expanding their operations and tapping into this dynamic market.

“It is quite thrilling for me to undertake this responsibility with a company with such a laudable reputation for accelerating business relations between Africa and the rest of the world. I look forward to further cooperation with the team towards advancing the company and helping our clients realize the vast potential of African markets”, Yeni notes.

We look forward to Yeni’s positive impact on the company’s growth trajectory.
