The great thing with high growth companies is that they work out business action plan to progress. Through technology and innovation, it is always easy to come up with ways to achieve more. And whether things go according to plan depend on who is on the driving seat, and the value they add. This is what technology giant, Microsoft Corporation, might be embracing to reach higher heights. The company has appointed Kendi Ntwiga – Nderitu as the new country lead who will be taking over the mantle from Sebuh Haileleul.
Having served as the general manager of the East, West and Central Africa cluster for Check Point Software prior to joining Microsoft, it is certain that the IT driven business leader will improve the Microsoft brand especially now that digitization is seen as a key driver of transformation. She has also held various roles in other organizations such as Oracle, Intel and HP. At the same time, she has worked for Paynet Kenya in the role of business development account manager.
Additionally, she is the founder of She-Goes-Tech, an initiative created with the purpose of mentoring young girls and women who are pursuing STEM careers. This dedication to mentoring women in the tech space has also seen her lead gender inclusion discussions across different forums, including the United Nations General Assembly in New York. She has also been recognized as an Emerging Leader in Innovation and Entrepreneurship by the US government through the TechWomen program.
Ms nderitu has proved instrumental in helping various organizations to develop strategic digital roadmaps and ultimately enabling them to improve efficiency as well as reduce costs, and is expected to develop and maintain effective relationships across the company’s subsidiaries, regional sales and marketing departments while creating strategies. She will also build plans, allocate resources, establish priorities and supervise engagements with the main goal of increasing Microsoft’s share of voice.
