Take us through your career journey
I joined insurance in 1999. I  started by setting  up my own  insurance brokerage which I run for 16 years. The brokerage really did well yet it was locally owned, it was one time ranked the third behind two international companies. My success was noticed by Marsh, an international broker, who headhunted me to head their operations here in Uganda, but I notified them that I was running my own business which was actually a competitor. They later came back and offered to buy my business after which I joined the company as their managing director in Uganda.
