Masimo-a-badimo Magerman, founder of Mergence and formerly MD of both Mergence Investment Managers and Mergence Africa Holdings Limited, will concentrate his focus as Group MD on further strategic growth at the group level where recent acquisitions have seen Mergence diversify into the industrial manufacturing and fintech sectors.
