President, Kilimanjaro International
Greyson Kiondo is President of Kilimanjaro International, a consulting and training firm assisting government and private-sector entities in emerging nations, especially in East and Central Africa. Kilimanjaro International provides organizational development, competency building and administrative support services aimed at generating the systems through which institutions are held accountable to the public. After arriving in the U.S. from his home in rural Tanzania with $50 in his pocket and a dream, Kiondo attended Binghamton University and founded his company in 1997, just prior to receiving a degree in finance. Today the company manages a portfolio of projects worth several million dollars and has member firms and local affiliates throughout East and Central Africa. Kiondo spends most of his time interacting with key decision makers in government, business and civil society. He is especially concerned about African brain drain and works to foster local talent and provide professional employment through his firms.
