James Nyambok

Head of Lending and General Manager, East Africa

I oversee Root Capital’s lending strategy in East & Southern Africa and focus on providing stellar credit and advisory services to our clients in agricultural enterprises. I joined Root Capital after many years working in commercial lending at banks in Kenya. I have lengthy experience working with both local and regional teams to invest in agribusinesses, global trade, and agricultural value chains. Over my career I have managed teams and market processes, holding senior agribusiness development roles at top-tier commercial banks. I’m excited to be part of Root Capital’s amazing team and incredible vision. When I’m not in the office, you can usually find me watching sports and spending time with my family.
