In order to strengthen IGD’s capacity to catalyze investment in Africa and drive socioeconomic impact, we are pleased to announce the expansion of our Leadership Council to include a number of prominent African CEOs. This step is in recognition of the important role these individuals are playing in catalyzing business growth on the continent as well as their commitment to expanding opportunity and lifting lives.
Please join us in welcoming:
- Mathews A.P. Chikaonda, Group Chief Executive, Press Corporation Limited (PCL)
- N. Justin Chinyanta, Chairman & CEO, Loita Capital Partners International Limited
- Strive Masiyiwa, Executive Chairman, Econet Wireless Global Limited

Led by Co-Chairs Madeleine Albright and Colin Powell, with the support of Corporate Co-Chairs William D. Green, former Chairman & CEO, Accenture, and Lewis B. Kaden, former Vice Chairman, Citigroup Inc., the Leadership Council brings together accomplished business leaders and global development experts to provide high-level guidance on IGD’s strategic direction and input on what tools and initiatives will enable our Frontier Leaders to expand their investments and operations in high-need, high-potential African sectors. The experience and leadership represented by these four CEOs will add immense value to the Council and its discussions. We look forward to announcing additional African members joining the Leadership Council in the future and to ensuring a strong Frontier Leader presence going forward.
