Mark Ocitti joined EABL in August 2014 as Managing Director for EABL International (“EABLi”) which is responsible for EABL’s business in South Sudan, Rwanda, Burundi and DRC.
During his tenure, Mark led the EABLi business in an extremely volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous environment. Within his first year he doubled EABLi’s contribution to the EABL Group from around 5% to over 10%. His strength in commercial and operational experience enabled him to successfully develop a robust distribution network in South Sudan and Rwanda, growing the Tusker brand into the number one preferred beer brand in South Sudan; as well as achieving and maintaining market leadership in premium spirits in both Rwanda and South Sudan.
Prior to joining EABL, Mark spent eleven (11) years in the oil industry with Shell International (Uganda); eight (8) years in the telecommunications industry with Bharti Airtel International; and one (1) year consulting in ComzAfrica, an African entrepreneurial telecoms value added services firm with an operational footprint in several countries.
