Eva Warigia will be stepping down from her duties as CEO of the East Africa Venture Capital Association (EAVCA) in April of 2023, after a high impact six years at the helm of the Association.

She remains available until March 31, 2023, for handover of any EAVCA related external engagements.

During this period of transition Jacklyne Iminza, current Head of Operations for EAVCA, will assume interim executive leadership of the Association as the Board seeks to fill the position of CEO.

Warigia joined the EAVCA first as Executive Director before assuming the role of CEO in 2021.

She has positively contributed in stewarding the association's position as an influential financial industry network across East Africa- through advocacy, partnership and member engagement efforts.

During her time at EAVCA, the network has grown its membership to over 100 member firms spread across geographies of: Africa, United States, Europe and the Middle East. She was instrumental in growing local awareness of private capital as an investable asset class working with regulators, institutional investors and angel investors to raise the region's capital allocation into alternative assets.

“We sincerely thank Eva for her dedicated service over the past six years and wish her well in her future pursuits,” commented David Owino, EAVCA Board Chairman.
