Leading African classified and marketplace group Ringier One Africa Media (Roam), has appointed Hilda Kabushenga Kragha as the new CEO of its career vertical Jobberman Nigeria.

Hilda Kabushenga Kragha

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.
