Kragha (LinkedIn profile) holds an MBA from IESE Business school. She previously worked at McKinsey & Company’s Lagos office as the company’s engagement manager. She consulted for private and public sector clients — primarily on strategy, human capital, talent management, change management and organizational behavior.
“Hilda’s experience, but more importantly, passion to bring positive change to the labor market, has made her the best possible person for this unique position,” Roam CEO Clemens Weitz said.
As the new chief executive of the No.1 job site in Nigeria, Kragha is responsible for driving growth and operations.
Jobberman was founded by three undergraduates in 2009. It’s since raised several millions of dollars and become a household name in the largest market in Africa. It’s home to a database of 2.5 million candidates, but employers still haven’t adopted the site as their main recruitment channel. Kragha will need to accelerate adoption to generate the multi-million dollar revenue the populous market promises.
Kragha’s appointment follows the exit of co-founder Ayodeji Adewunmi, who left the company to focus on his passion for venture investing. She takes over from Roam head of jobs Mathew Page who’s been acting as interim CEO since Adewunmi stepped down.
