Famoco, Idinvest Digital portfolio company, opens its first African office in Abidjan
Posted on: 27/04/2018
After passing the symbolic €10 million sales mark and hiring its 100th employee, Famoco, France's leading provider of secure professional devices, is positioned for growth and is opening its first office in Africa - in Abidjan, Ivory Coast. This fifth international opening marks the company's plans for rapid expansion, particularly in Africa, to be closer to clients, including Orange, to provide them with the best possible service. The company also recently appointed a permanent representative in East Africa, in Nairobi, Kenya, and plans to attend the ID4Africa Annual Meeting in Nigeria from April 24th to 26th.
With the opening of an office in Ivory Coast to cover the African continent, Famoco is pursuing its international development strategy to increase client contact opportunities, monitor projects already in progress and launch new ones. The new office will be managed by Olivier Cechura, General Manager Africa. Former marketing director and African business ecosystem specialist, he was among the first to believe in Famoco's vision and helped its founders set up the company. This appointment underlines the strategic importance of Africa for the start-up.
In addition, Famoco will be taking part in the ID4Africa Annual Meeting in Abuja, Nigeria, from April 24th to 26th, 2018. IDF4Africa is a tripartite movement with representation from governments, development agencies and industry, focused on identity management matters relevant to Africa. Its annual meeting attended by the authorities, agencies, service providers and experts, is an opportunity for the movement to define the electronic identity development agenda to further the economic and social development in their countries.
