Snehar Shah succeeds Audrey Cheng as the new CEO for Moringa School. He brings a vast experience of 25 years from multiple industries (Telecoms, Investment Banking, Infrastructure, Renewable Energy); diverse geographies (UK, Europe, Africa) and Leadership Roles (Strategy, CFO, General Management) that will be valuable as Moringa enters its next stage of growth in building the leading career management platform for tech workers in Africa.
Founded in 2014, Moringa School has grown from training a class of 4 students in its first Nairobi classroom to enrolling over 4,000 students to date across Software Engineering and Data Science bootcamps. Moringa has so far proven a 84% success rate of job-seeking students employed within 12 months. In a survey of major tech employers in East Africa, a Computer Science degree combined with the Moringa bootcamp is the most attractive profile for those recruiting junior developers.
Audrey Cheng, the Founder of Moringa School commented “I’m incredibly proud of the work the team at Moringa has done to date and I’m pleased that the next stage of our growth will be led by Snehar. He will lead Moringa through a period of rapid growth and continue to drive our vision that anybody can create their future. Under his leadership, Moringa will ensure that tech workers across Africa will access the skills and opportunities to build successful careers. We are delighted to have him on board.”
