Edelman Africa, a pan-African communications consultancy, has named Corazon Sefu Wandimi as the new managing director for its Kenya office.
This is part of the firm’s plans to strengthen local connections through global best practices.
She takes the role from Portia Gibbs, who has worked in the Kenyan office since its inception in February 2020.
“Wandimi’s strong profile in the public relations and communications sector has made her a natural fit for the position,” the firm said in an emailed statement.
It added that “Wandimi brings a wealth of experience and a significant network of contacts to her new role.”
Prior to her new role, Wandimi worked with Open Capital, a Management Consulting firm and financial advisory firm focused on Africa.
She has worked with some of the world’s largest brands, including Coca-Cola, VISA and MTV, as well as fast-growing African brands such as Open Capital, DPO Group and Zuku.
“Corazon has driven forward some of the region’s most high-profile work which aligns perfectly with Edelman Kenya’s position and vision for growth,” Jordan Rittenberry, Chairman for Edelman Middle East and Africa (MEA) and CEO of Edelman Africa said.
