Roheen Berry

Managing Director, Contec Global Group

Roheen Berry was educated at Sherwood College in India and the Kennedy School at Harvard University.

Growing up in the UK, Nigeria, and India, Roheen joined Contec Global in 2009, following a period of employment at the Wellington Investment Management group.

Between 2009 and 2012, Roheen was instrumental in expanding Contec Global from Nigeria to greater Africa by engaging with senior politicians, civil servants and heads of state. During this period, he was particularly adept at visiting frontier market countries in West Africa such as Gambia, Niger, Burkina Faso, Guinea, Burundi and South Sudan winning substantial contracts for the firm in government based secure technology.

Following his success in growing the reach of Contec Global, Roheen was appointed Managing Director of Contec Global in 2012. Since his appointment, Roheen has been instrumental in expanding the secure document business into East Africa (Malawi and Kenya) and West Africa (Sierra Leone), while simultaneously focusing on new opportunities to diversify their work into biometric technology, agriculture, green energy, transportation, and telecommunication.

Roheen has also taken a keen interest in philanthropic projects in Africa to complement the firm’s business interests. Key examples have included donating tablets and mobile smartphones to Chibok survivors in Nigeria in 2017, donating to the kidney care unit at Centre Medico Chirurgical de Kinindo in 2014, sponsoring Burundi’s athletics team at the 2012 London Olympics, providing computer equipment for schools in Burundi in 2007, and assisting in the opening of the Burundi Embassy in London.
