How Centum CEO James Mworia learnt work ethic from parents: Interview part 1/3

Centum Investment Chief Executive Officer James Mworia

It is the African-American social reformer and abolitionist, Frederick Douglass, who said, “It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.”

By setting a sense of purpose and responsibility early in his life, James Mworia’s parents set a solid foundation that has defined the direction and work ethic of the Chief Executive Officer of Centum Investments.

In this first episode of our exclusive interview, Mworia talks about his earlier years growing up in Nanyuki and how a series of events at Alliance High School and Strathmore University steered him away from a career in law to investments.

Next week: How Mworia rose from intern to CEO in seven years
