Our Professional Team

Kenan maintains an in-house team of over 50 professionals, 38 of whom have attained at least a Master’s Degree or higher. In keeping with our philosophy of leveraging private sector resources to meet development needs, our dedicated team of development specialists consists of former bankers, health professionals, engineers, IT specialists, educators, and government officials.

Kenan also has external capacity in the form of our six Senior Associates, who work on a project-by-project basis, as well as numerous international contract consultants from a range of professional disciplines. Finally, Kenan has an extensive network of business, academic and government professionals who have benefited from previous Kenan program activities and now provide guidance and support on select projects.
