UK-headquartered global technology firm, RedCloud Technology, is proud to announce the appointment of Sameer Jooma as the general manager for South Africa.

Jooma, who has a wealth of experience in ecosystem development, will be responsible for accelerating the adoption of the world’s first open commerce platform, Red101, and driving growth in the Southern Africa region.

An experienced innovation and analytics executive with a deep understanding of technology, Jooma has worked with some of the biggest names in consumer packaged goods, finance and technology across Africa and holds positions on the boards of some of the fastest growing startups in the region.

I am confident that open commerce is the key to driving sustainable growth for the millions of retailers and small businesses across Africa that are struggling to survive under the current ineffecient, offline and often fragmented trading model”.

We are excited to work with one of the most knowledgeable experts in South Africa, who has extensive experience working at the highest levels in the consumer packaged goods, finance and technology industries.
