Geoffrey Shimanyula

MD, Bawbab.us

I am an innovative thinker with broad based expertise in operations, technology, Finance and business development with proven ability to quickly analyze key business drivers and develop strategies to grow the bottom line. I am a person of integrity and energetic leader known for the creation of successful outcomes in complex situations. Over the years, I have built diverse industry and functional expertise with tenacious commitment to driving sales; profits and market share.

One of my significant achievements is my success in sourcing funding for and implementing development partners funded projects. I am well-versed in developing tender documents, coordinating team building, submission procedures, and evaluating funded projects for systematic development partners. Additionally, I have managed consultancy services and developed terms of reference for programmed projects. I select relevant experts from a database of experts on trade and trade-related issues to ensure the success of many projects.

I am also committed to promoting gender equality in trade. I have been a strong advocate for gender mainstreaming in trade, which involves integrating gender considerations into trade policies and programs. This approach recognizes the different roles and needs of men and women in the trade sector and seeks to ensure that both men and women benefit equally from trade-related activities.

My expertise has enabled me to provide technical assistance and institutional capacity building to various organizations, while also conducting research on market intelligence and trade information collation. I am passionate about my work and look forward to continuing to make a difference in the trade industry.
