Moses Chundu

Moses is a seasoned Economist with over 17 years of experience spanning the Academic, Banking Sector, Manufacturing Sector, Government and Development Work at analytical and senior levels. Throughout his career he has been tested heavily on his ability to pioneer institutions and building winning teams, having been responsible in year 2000, for setting up an Economics Department at the Midlands State University and later successfully developed a Graduate Business School as its inaugural Director.

As a banker at CFX Financial Services Group, he had the responsibility of setting up a fully-fledged Research, Economics and Business Development Division as a Group Economist. His deal making skills proved handy in growing the corporate book during this Bank’s most trying times in the worst episode in the history of banking in Zimbabwe. At the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe, he was very instrumental in setting up Homelink (Pvt) Limited, a subsidiary of the Reserve Bank before successfully setting up a Foreign Investment Promotion Division in the Governor’s Office and later in establishing Fiscorp (Pvt) Limited, a subsidiary of the Reserve Bank responsible for managing the Bank’s quasi-fiscal loan facilities.

In South Africa, he was part of the pioneering team for deVere Africa office in Cape Town. At the time deVere Group was the world's largest independent financial consultancy group with in excess of USD8 billion of funds under administration and management, and more than sixty thousand clients in over one hundred countries. At Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA), he was very instrumental in setting up a Project Implementation Support Unit to provide specialist technical & business support expertise to the US$12 million World Bank’s Renewable Energy Market Transformation Project for the South African Government in conjunction with the DBSA. This had taken South Africa three years to achieve.

Moses joined the Prime Minister’s office in the then Inclusive Government in Zimbabwe during the period 2009-2013. As Economic Advisor to the Prime Minister he brought to the Team a wealth of vast experience spanning all sectors as well as an extensive understanding of the Zimbabwean socio, political and economic landscape. Zimbabwe’s social and economic indicators during this period bear testimony to the effectiveness of his interventions. He also had a lot of international exposure during this period, visiting over 45 capitals in the world and meeting senior executives and heads of governments on official business.

At the close of this constitutional mandate in September 2013, he then reverted to the corporate sector holding directorship positions in a number of companies while consulting in corporate strategy, turnaround strategies and offshore resource mobilisation. His main client until recently was Korean with interests in manufacturing being the major shareholder in Art Corporation where, as Chairman, I steered the ship back to profitability in less than a year, with the share price growing 235% during the same period earning the group an award as the best performing counter in Sub Saharan Africa during the same period. He also brokered the historic deal that brought Samsung Electronics to Zimbabwe to assemble TVs and Fridges among many other achievements. Most bottom line numbers in companies he was involved in were going in the positive defying trends in a market where all the others were heading downwards.
