Software Group, a firm that provides digital financial solutions, has appointed Mr. Connor Hanan as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for Africa.
Hanan will oversee Africa’s operations and sales and manage the Kenya and Ghana teams of over 60 employees.
Currently, Software Group works with more than 65 clients in Africa including banks, insurance companies, MFIs, and Saccos. One of the main goals of the company would be to grow its team sustainably over the coming years as well as to analyze and identify new markets for expansion.
“The African financial ecosystem is a place of constant change; new frontiers of opportunity are being identified and rapidly accessed. It is no longer appropriate to think only of delivery channels for market penetration – one must be agile and strategic,” commented Mr. Hanan.
Prior to his appointment, Mr. Hanan was the company’s Key Global Accounts Manager. Mr. Hanan has over 11 years of experience with FSPs, client-focused product design, and market analysis, a seasoned professional in Investor/Client Relations, as a Program/Project manager, and as a Director of operations with a specific focus on strategic organizational development.
