Previously, Rosemary served as the Head of Legal and Regulatory Affairs at WayaWaya; the Senior Associate Legal and Regulatory Affairs specialist at the Mobile Decisioning Holding Ltd (MODE); and contributed to the establishment of Caritas Microfinance Bank while serving as a Legal and Administrative Officer Caritas Nairobi.
Cumulatively, Chemu has over 10 years of experience in fintech and is contributor to the fintech ecosystem having played an instrumental role in the establishment and growth of the Nairobi Legal Hackers, the Digital Innovation Group (Caucus) and is a member of the Kenya ICT Action Network otherwise referred to as (KICTANET).
While at Oxygene, her prowess in spotting the interlinkages between law and innovation was unparalleled which contributed to the expansion of knowledge and skills of the public policy department and the company overall. This has improved overall service delivery to clients who can attest to timely advisories that are informed and well researched.
Colleagues will definitely miss the explanatory anecdotes on various policy issues that always began with her common phrase “Let me tell you…”
