South African fintech company JUMO has appointed Buhle Goslar as its Africa CEO. The company also appointed Ashish Desai as its CEO for India.
The appointments come as part of a new organisational structure to support JUMO’s expansion into new markets in Africa and Asia.
Goslar, who previously held the role of Chief Customer and Sustainability Officer at JUMO, will oversee the company’s business in its African markets including Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia. Based out of the Cape Town operational hub, she will also focus on strategic partnerships in new markets on the continent. Prior to joining JUMO Goslar worked as Head of Product at Woolworths Financial Services and held senior marketing roles at Barclays and Investec.
“I look forward to building on the solid base we have achieved in five African countries, and not only widening our reach geographically, but also deepening our services for entrepreneurs and MSMEs. To do this, we’ll continue our close relationships with new and existing partners and other stakeholders, united around the ambition to drive financial inclusion and boost economic growth where it matters,” said Buhle Goslar.
Andrew Watkins-Ball as Group CEO said: “As our business grows into new markets, we have the ability to scale our technology and data analytics capability to reach even more entrepreneurs and enable greater access to financial services across the world. I’m proud to have this calibre of leadership driving the next chapter in our journey to become a truly global technology company for building and running financial services.”
