Day-to-day operations, strategy development and execution of the Foundation are managed by Dr. Wiebe Boer, formerly Associate Director at the Rockefeller Foundation, one of the world’s leading charitable organisations with more than 90 years of commitment to Africa. His vision is for The Tony Elumelu Foundation to be a benchmark for 21st Century African philanthropy. The focus of Dr. Boer’s work in Africa has included impact investing, climate change, agricultural development, China’s engagement with Africa, and impact outsourcing. He joined the Rockefeller Foundation in 2008 after three years as a consultant with McKinsey & Company. He helped the government of Kenya develop a long-term economic development strategy. He also spent several years in Mauritania managing a USAID-funded food aid development project for World Vision. Born and raised in Jos, Nigeria, Dr. Boer earned his doctorate in history at Yale University and undergraduate degree at Calvin College, Michigan, Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA.
