TechnoServe works with enterprising men and women in the developing world to build competitive farms, businesses and industries. A nonprofit organization operating in 29 countries, TechnoServe is a leader in harnessing the power of the private sector to help people lift themselves out of poverty. By linking people to information, capital and markets, Technoserve has helped millions to create lasting prosperity for their families and communities.

We will be discussing the power of private enterprise to transform lives, and William’s experience navigating the changing landscape of international development. William launched his career as a Peace Corps volunteer in Sierra Leone and has since worked in over 40 developing countries. Prior to joining TechnoServe, William served as chief operating officer of Pact, Inc. and as president of the Pact Global Microfinance Fund – one of the world’s largest microfinance institutions – which made over $120 million in loans to poor rural women in 2013.

Previously, William served as executive vice president for health and development solutions with Voxiva Inc., where he led the development of innovative, mobile phone-based health information systems. As a former executive vice president at PSI, he led initiatives such as the development of the organization’s global strategic plan and oversaw a $90 million portfolio of health programs in Africa.
