Seni Sulyman, vice president of global operations at tech recruitment site Andela, will step aside on May 15, 2020.
Sulyman announced the decision in a post on Medium.
“After four tremendous years at Andela, I am transitioning out of my role as Vice President of Global Operations and into the Alumni Network on May 15,” he wrote.
Sulyman added that he would be using the time to rest, think and plan for his next endeavor. Sulyman has been highly instrumental to Andela’s growth. He joined the company in 2016 — two years after its inception — as director of operations for Nigeria before becoming country director six months later. In March 2018, he was promoted to Andela’s head of talent recruitment and development and African operations across Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Ghana and Egypt.
Prior to joining Andela, Sulyman had stints at Hewlett Packard (HP), Bain & Company and CardinalStone Partners in managerial and associate roles.
Andela’s Nigeria country director, Omowale David-Ashiru will be taking over Seni Sulyman’s duties, including leading operations across the continent with support from the company’s team of country directors.
Andela connects U.S.-based companies with local tech talent for outsourced remote work and on-site projects. Last year it raised $100 million in a round led by Al Gore’s investment fund to promote remote work and reduce carbon emissions.
