Angela Kyerematen-Jimoh has been appointed as the strategic partner lead for Africa by Microsoft.
Kyerematen-Jimoh, who will be operating from Microsoft’s newly formed Africa Transformation Office (ATO), is expected to build strategic partnerships with governments, financial institutions, telecommunications operators, multinational and international organisations across the African continent.
According to a post on her LinkedIn social media platform, the move is in line with an effort to fuel Africa’s transformation, scale up growth and accelerate the ATO’s mission on the continent.
Microsoft’s establishment of the ATO will reinforce its investment to enable digital transformation in Africa. Its activities will focus on facilitating growth and fuelling investment in four essential development areas – digital infrastructure, skills development, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and start-ups.
“Kudos to Microsoft for this game-changing initiative and for hand-picking talent to lead this charge,” Kyerematen-Jimoh said.
“I am certain this will be one of the biggest success stories for our continent.
“We are rolling up our sleeves and getting started! Come with me on this super exciting journey.”
Before her latest promotion, Kyerematen-Jimoh was in charge of North, East and West Africa as a general manager for IBM.
