Jumia has announced that they welcomed Charles Ballard as the new Chief Executive Officer of Jumia Kenya.
I am excited to continue driving the e-commerce narrative in rural Kenya where more than 70% of the population lives. Access to Modern Retail is a challenge in these areas, which is a great opportunity to grow our online marketplace. E-commerce can bring better prices, more choices, and convenience to the rural Kenyans.Charles Ballard, CEO, Jumia Kenya
