Meet the Moko Dream Team! We’re working toward one common goal: providing customers with brighter, better, more comfortable lifestyles.
As Chief Dreamerzzz, we’re always focused on motivating and developing our teams toward delivering on our vision – creating a new, smiley world one home at a time. Work is definitely fun when you’re guaranteeing smiles from satisfied customers.
One half of Moko’s founding team, Eric has a history of joining organizations at their early states and creating successful projects from promising ideas. Before founding Moko, he worked as a Programs Director with top global charity Evidence Action, leading a program that scaled to serve over 1 million people in 3 countries. Although born and raised in the USA, his first full-time job was in Kenya, and he has remained here since, constantly dreaming up new ways to bring comfort to people’s lives.
Great ideas aren’t the only thing Eric cooks up! After spending his days steering the Moko ship to new horizons, you’ll find Chef Kous whipping up delicious food in the kitchen.
Fio is the other half of Moko’s founding team. Before his Moko days, he worked in public health as a Technical Project Lead with Dimagi, leading the implementation of a new mobile-based drugs distribution system that reduced stock out rate and was scaled nation-wide in Senegal.
Don’t let Fio’s cool demeanor fool you. He has a serious talent for inspiring employee passion and excitement. And that enthusiasm translates flawlessly to his football team, Napoli, as he cheers them on with high-pitched screams that he swears helps lead them to victory.
Grow, baby, grow! Moko’s Head of Growth, Neema, is a growth strategy expert in helping early-stage, fast-growing organizations maximize their impact and scale their operations to serve more people. Before joining Moko, she worked at Nova Pioneer Schools as their Growth & Expansion Lead, heading the launch of two new schools, as well as the expansion of three schools in East Africa.
Speaking of growth, Neema’s personal library is forever growing! This bookworm can’t walk into a bookstore without leaving with at least 3 books. If anyone knows of a book-buyers-anonymous support group, let Neema know!
With over a decade of experience in finance and operations, Kellie heads up Moko’s Finance Department. Before joining Moko, she served as the Head of Corporate Finance Advisory and Training at Lattice, where she supported over 500 businesses in articulating their growth expectations, streamlining their operations, and implementing accounting systems that adhered to best practices.
Although Kellie is a person of few spoken words, she is a master of the written word! She has an active personal finance blog that currently has a rich archive of hundreds (possibly thousands) of articles she’s written over the last 10 years. We’re thinking future book idea!.
Prince has a wealth of general management experience, with a specialization in operations management, project management and value-stream optimization. Before joining Moko, he worked with Kenya Airways overseeing maintenance for KQ’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner fleet, including preparing it to launch the first direct flight from Nairobi to New York.
Full speed ahead! A certified adrenaline junkie, Prince is a lover of all things fast: cars, bikes, and skates. His epic tales of off-road biking would make even the most adventurous of us think twice!.
“E” is for efficiency and Eileen is all about it! She began her career at USG Sweetwater, Texas as a project and process engineer, eventually working her way up the ladder to manufacturing management.
Eileen likes to keep things real chill when she’s not busy overseeing product manufacturing. To unwind, she enjoys a good book, a comforting cup of hot tea, and music. In fact, in another life, she’d probably be a singer.
Nancy has a strong background in Operations and Finance. She worked in the financial services sector as an analyst with American Express. After completing both her undergraduate degree and Master’s degree in the USA, Nancy moved back to Kenya and joined Lori Systems as the Chief of Staff, where she helped scale the company from 15 employees to over 150. Before joining Moko she held the role of Manager, Strategic Initiatives at Lori Systems with the goal of focusing on cross-functional projects across the East African Region.
Michael is Moko’s B2B Sales Manager. Once a technical specialist with Money & Pensions Services, Michael provided advisory and consulting services to the public regarding pensions, debt, finances, consumer protection & strategy via Pensionwise appointments. In 3 short years, he steered their growth from a fund value of KShs 10 billion to KShs 15 billion. He ensured revenue targets were consistently met, while maintaining high standards of regulatory compliance and client engagement.
A true lover of history and culture, Michael is an avid world traveler. He’s visited Tanzania, South Africa, India, Oman, UAE, the USA, and the UK. When this globetrotter is at home, he loves to host parties, where he makes killer bespoke cocktails!
Yvonne has experience in FMCG sales, business development consultancy and operations management. Before joining the Moko family, she worked with Triggerise Kenya as the Operations Lead. There, she launched the SRH focused Non-Profit, and implemented programs that scaled to 8 counties, positively impacting the lives of thousands of Kenyan girls.
Yvonne is not only a talented manager, she’s got some serious culinary skills too! Baking is her secret stress reliever, and she’s pretty darn great at it. Don’t believe us? Just try her carrot cake! *mouth waters*.
A true “people person,” Wahito is our Retail Experience Manager. With a background in insurance and banking, Wahito has worked mostly in customer-facing roles, and thrives on the energy that comes from interacting with people.
Wambui has a wealth of experience in customer relationship management, process building, account management, and resource management across the media and agricultural sectors. She designed and implemented an end-to-end task tracking system with the use of a project management tool, best practice guidelines, and a three-tier quality assurance mechanism for a leading digital agency. This resulted in dramatic decreases in turnover and revert rates, culminating in a more rewarding experience for clients and a happier design team.
When Wambui isn’t making customers smile, you can find her jamming to country tunes! She’s a huge country music fan (and not just Kenny Rogers)!
Felix has extensive experience in warehouse & logistics inventory management and sales distribution, particularly with FMCGs. He worked with Bolloré Transport & Logistics Kenya and Diageo – EABL International, where he steered operations in Juba Depot, South Sudan. Felix facilitated distribution of the company’s products via River Nile and Air to get to the far-flung states from the capital.
Karuoro successfully directed a vehicle import company that sourced automobile (and automobile parts) from Japan, the UK, Australia and SA. He was responsible for finding new source markets, establishing partnerships, and growing business.
Karuoro loves a good laugh! This comedy fan enjoys stand-up comedy and comedy shows, but for some reason, generally dislikes comedy movies! Try to figure that one out!
