As a serial entrepreneur with a long-standing interest in building life-changing businesses, he is expected to play an important role in Fenix’s aim to deliver solar home systems and other life-changing products to the customers across Africa.

Romisher added, “Over 600mn Africans are still currently living off the grid. To reach the vast numbers of people who remain without clean, reliable and affordable access to power we must think differently. Fenix's technology & brand combined with its partnership with Engie provide the ideal platform to reach these households, unlocking massive social, environmental and economic benefits.”
