Terry Afram is the Country Managing Director for Jumia Food Ghana.
Born and raised in the Netherlands, but of Ghanaian descent, Terry decided to move back home not too long ago. Jumia Food is part of the Jumia Group, Africa’s first corporate with a valuation of over 1bn USD. The reigning CIMG E-commerce company of the year is Ghana’s leading online food delivery service. Leading a team of over 100+ staff members, Terry has been able to grow the company rapidly and has collected different awards and personal accolades as a result. These include the CIMG Marketing Performance Award, Future of Ghana 30 Under 30 recognition, and a spot in the recent Kleurrijke Top 100 ranking for Dutch business leaders.
Prior to joining Juma Food, Terry worked as an Investment Banker at Goldman Sachs and advised on Mergers and Acquisitions. As a student Terry was already passionate about the African continent, and founded the African Business Day, the first Africa-focused business conference of its kind in the Netherlands, which got endorsed by the likes of former Dutch Prime Minister Jan-Peter Balkenende. Currently, Terry also writes columns for the Volkskrant, one of the leading Dutch journals, and speaks on cultural African matters.
