With more than 15 years of living, working and doing business experience with Africa in international organization such as the MAN Group and Wincor Nixdorf, Mr. Zander developed a strong understanding for a yet underserved market. His believe in the continents’ potential, the increasing interest of companies who are hesitating but willing to enter into business relations with Africa as well as his entrepreneurial spirit led him to found XCOM Africa as a startup company in 2010.
Within the first three years of existence XCOM Africa built up a portfolio of large international clients to small and medium sized German companies. The regional focus on Nigeria, Ghana and Kenya, its hands-on approach in customer relations, as well as Mr. Zander’s thorough believe that Africa needs African solutions distinguishes XCOM Africa from other existing consultancies.
Furthermore, XCOM Africa is an active member of SAVE FOOD and has been developing project in Africa together with Messe Duesseldorf and SAVE FOOD to reduce food waste in Kenya. Mr. Zander holds a diploma in International Business with focus on strategy and marketing of the International School of Management in Dortmund.
