Nicholas Wachira, 2010, Kenya

Managing Director for East Africa, Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide - Nairobi, Kenya

The Fletcher impact: "In my role at Ogilvy, I draw on my experiences at Fletcher and in journalism in solving very complex communication problems for my clients, some of the biggest African brands such as Safaricom, Diageo, and Unilever. I cannot imagine a better place to continue the conversations and debates I shared with my friends and professors, which today stand out as the frontline issues that African newsrooms and my clients are confronting." 

Why I chose Fletcher: "As a professional journalist seeking a broader business education in the context of global current affairs, Fletcher stood out for me because of its long tradition of academic strength and prestige among the top professional schools of international affairs. The experience was eye-opening and rewarding.”
