Meet Mr. Mark Kimata, our newest Board Director!
Born in Nairobi and raised by a single mother struggling with the challenges of Kenya, Mark’s mom dreamt of achieving the American Dream. After several attempts, she was able to seize hold of an opportunity and in 2002, in Mark’s own words, “they were blessed enough to come to America.” Fast forward a few years later and Mark graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.S. in Business Administration Management from Kennesaw State University Coles College of Business in 2015. Mark comes highly recommended and holds degrees in Business Management and Marketing from both Chattahoochee Technical College and Kennesaw State University.
Mark has experience in entrepreneurial ventures, business partnerships, marketing and corporate proposals and sales. Highly motivated and self-driven, Mark understands our purpose and vision at Clean Water Kenya and already is working to take us to the next level here at home as well as in Kenya. Mark’s devoted to the escalation of Kenya’s economy and hopes his efforts with Clean Water Kenya will get us one step closer to that goal. He understands well the challenges we face bringing clean water to the Rift Valley. His contacts in the Kenyan business world and government hold out the opportunity for partnerships at both the local and state level.
Mark currently is Sales Manager with the Hilton Garden Inn Atlanta Airport North and is the Chair of the Association of Kenyan Professionals in Atlanta. He also served as the Brand and Marketing Manager of Hearts of Love Caregivers LLC and is a small scale farmer in Karia, Kenya.
We’re very happy to have Mr. Mark Kimata on board and look forward to taking Clean Water Kenya to the next level and expanding our work with the Maasai in the Rift Valley of Kenya and beyond.
