Soerensen brings over 15 years of rich finance and leadership experience, most recently as the Head of The Africa List and Nigeria coverage at CDC Group, where she supported the growth of CDC’s investment footprint in the region, with an emphasis on developing management and organisational capacity within the portfolio and beyond.

This is a talented, world-class team with a strong reputation in the market, and I look forward to working closely across the team to develop the key operational pillars that will support the business through its growth trajectory.”

Soerensen joins the executive management team at Verod and will be responsible for managing the day to day operations of the firm, building a stronger platform for sustainable growth and supporting Verod on its path to becoming an exceptional investment firm.
