My Vision

My name R O Z Y spells out the 4 vital areas that I believe our organization must focus on for a thriving future and explains how my experience and skills will enable me to make meaningful and valuable contributions as a Board member:


Resilience

We have to be agile and remain adaptable in the face of the ever changing economy and our digital future. Over my 28 years of senior corporate experience in a dynamic environment, I have learnt to be far-sighted, strategic and innovative in all my undertakings

Operational Excellence

We must operate with excellence at all levels. In 2017, I was the founding chair of the East Africa Territorial Council spanning 5 countries. Since inception, we have consistently attained Smedley Distinguished status. We maintain an average of 26 members per club and 80%+ of our clubs are distinguished annually.

Zoom

I want us to zoom in on new territories that are ripe for receiving the unique benefits of our program. I helped quadruple the number of clubs in East Africa in 3 years and I can support penetration into new regions and support optimal growth of our organization at international level too.

You-focused

You-focused on the member – we must be empathetic, and epitomize our values of respect, integrity, service and excellence without prejudices of any nature. I am an African of Asian descent married to a Canadian. I represent every one of you and will ensure respect for diversity and shared values.

My Story

Let me introduce myself


I was born in a village in Kenya. My father was born in the same village when the country was still a British colony. He was 20 when the struggle for independence started, and the ‘Mau Mau’ freedom fighters often sought refuge at our home during the violence. The legend of the heroic actions of my father and the lives he saved continued well into modern times.

In school, I was nicknamed ‘Shiro’, after a legendary ancestor of the Agikuyu tribe. I grew up with immense pride in being an African, and thanks to the genes inherited from my Dad, I aspired to emulate his example by always being protective of my community!
