Chief Financial Officer- Trading at SOL IOM

Employed since: October 2013

Career path: I started my career in 1997 as a trainee audit clerk with Ernst & Young in South Africa and qualified as a Chartered Accountant (SA). I left EY RSA to join EY Ghana on secondment in 2002 and subsequently joined Armajaro Trading and my exposure to the trading world in 2004. Armajaro was one of the largest participants in the Ghana cocoa industry and had a significant presence in the global cocoa market with its head office based in the UK.  Whilst living in Ghana I travelled to our companies in Ghana, Ivory Coast and Nigeria and enjoyed the cultural exposure and diversity of all the people I interacted with.

My family and I relocated to the UK with Armajaro in 2011 where I travelled extensively to global cocoa and coffee operations including LATAM, East and West Africa as well as our Asian offices in Indonesia, Vietnam and Kuala Lumpur.

What do you like most about working for Seaboard Overseas and Trading Group? Being part of the Seaboard family and delivering solutions together. The contributions and participation of everyone, who not only focus on the success and sustainability of the business but also care about each other, is something unique and special to Seaboard. The dynamic of the interrelated complexities of both the trading of soft commodities, the related logistical challenges and financial implications is very stimulating, and I love a good challenge. The depth of experience and skillset, which is apparent when collaborating within the Seaboard team, is humbling with continued learning and challenges. I love the history, nature and biodiversity status of the IOM office location. 

How would you describe the company culture? Teamwork, mutual respect, quality and integrity in everything we do is obvious from the top down regardless of the situation. The central location of the Isle of Man enables fast and efficient communication with the global team in order to collaborate towards resolution of challenges in an inclusive manner.

What do you enjoy most about working for Bolux Group?

I enjoy the depth and complexity of the issues we grapple with on a day-to-day basis. Working for Bolux Group is far better than attending MBA classes. Most of the business scenarios that are taught in business schools play out here, and I’ve been fortunate enough to experience them first hand. Botswana is also my home country, and it is a very peaceful country to reside in.

What important values do you think Bolux Group delivers on?

I think that Bolux Group’s values include:

  • Innovation
  • Customer Service
  • Teamwork
  • Honesty
