Prior to entering the African market, Ms Habimana was the company’s commercial director. Her accolades include leading the brands eCommerce and omni-channel development teams into the US markets, followed shortly by Southeast Asia, and then sub-Saharan Africa.
Today, she uses her knowledge and network to support and mentor entrepreneurs across the continent. Not only does she sit on the board of several fashion brands in Africa, she is also the host of Tailored Business, a television show on entrepreneurship in Africa, which is broadcast on CNBC Africa. In addition, Ms Habimana is co-founder of Johannesburg-based, NONZēRO Agency, a purpose-driven marketing agency focused on enterprise development and impact programmes in Africa.
Recently Ms Habimana was recognised by the European Commission for her international mobility career and efforts to promot youth internationalisation under the ‘Erasmus+’ programme. Now the face of the British Council for the Erasmus+ Youth Mobility programme, she is an avid advocate for pan-African mobility and cross-border enterprise development.
