Summary

Five-time USAID Chief of Party with a cumulative 15 years of COP experience. I have 37 + years technical experience on agribusiness and value chain development, rural agriculture production and agriculture finance. I have proven skills in diplomacy and consensus-generation, and put strong emphasis on developing productive relationships with host country officials, public and private institutions, and across contentious geographic, governance, and ethnic divides. I have a track record of successfully building private sector partnerships that benefit agricultural SMEs. I have experience in brokering collaboration with oil and gas companies such as Exxon and Shell Oil to create grant funds to support SME development. I have demonstrated strong leadership, ability to deliver results, and proven partnership-building skills in all projects. I focus heavily on empowering local staff and am most successful at tackling complex challenges through development with innovative solutions.
