posted onNovember 26, 2021

The Board of Directors of the Private Sector Foundation appointed Stephen Asiimwe as its new executive director. 

Asiimwe, who has been serving as director of policy and business development at the Foundation, replaces Gideon Badagawa who died in June.
"The appointment takes immediate effect," according to Dr. Elly Karuhanga, the PSFU board chairman.

After Badagawa's passing, his deputy Francis Kisirinya assumed his office in acting capacity.

"Asiimwe has experience spanning over 30 years in both Government and private sector at management, leadership and business leadership levels in Uganda and globally," Karuhanga said, adding a message to PSFU staff:

"We request you to give him complete cooperation so that he can deliver the best of his services for the benefits of the staff, Board, PSFU members, the private sector and Uganda as a whole."

Private sector Foundation Uganda (PSFU) is Uganda’s umbrella body for the private sector made up of 230 Business Associations, Corporate bodies and the major Public Sector Agencies that support private sector growth.

Since its founding in 1995, PSFU has served as a focal point for private sector advocacy as well as capacity building and continues to sustain a positive dialogue with the government on behalf of the private sector.

PSFU is also the government’s implementation partner for several projects and programmes aimed at strengthening the private sector as an engine of economic growth in Uganda.
