Appointment of Country Manager


I am delighted to announce the appointment of BCP’s new Country Manager, Mr. Mike Mailloux, to the Team. Mike will officially assume the position on 15th of February 2022, where he will form part of the Executive Management Team. Mike will be based out of BCP Zambia’s Head Office in Lusaka, with frequent travel to our sites offices throughout Zambia.

Bringing to the role years of hands-on operational management experience, and invaluable knowledge in the sector, Mike began his development career in 1995 as a US Peace Corps Business Volunteer in Mauritania. He has spent 24 years managing complex, large-scale livelihoods, natural resource management, and agri-business programmes across Kenya, Mali, Malawi, Mozambique, Senegal, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia. In 1998, Mike joined the US based National Cooperative Business Association to assist with its main Zambian program. It was during this time that he redesigned the training and coaching regimens and manuals for CLUSA, while incorporating the Zambian Conservation Farming Unit’s (CFU) Conservation Farming practices into program activities. Mike founded and managed a small, but the successful UK based agricultural consultancy business and left London in late 2011 to design and manage the Zambian Conservation Farming Unit’s four-country regional program. Up until 2021, Mike was the CFU Programme Manager for the CFU’s forty-three district-wide Climate Smart Agriculture Zambia programme.

Mike will spend the first few months in his new position familiarizing himself with the role, where he will be responsible for the operational execution of BCP’s REDD+ projects in Zambia. As a team, we are incredibly excited to welcome Mike to BCP, as we embark on this exciting next chapter of our company’s journey under our 4 Year Strategic Plan. I have the highest confidence in Mike’s capabilities, experience, and expertise, with the support of our dedicated management team.

Please join me in wishing Mike the greatest success in his new role.
 
Nic Mudaly, BCP’s Interim CEO.
