Co-CEO and co-founder of Pula

Kenyan-born Thomas Njeru co-founded insurtech Pula in 2015 and became its co-CEO in June 2017. Providing insurance to smallholder farmers was a key objective for Njeru, who grew up in a small farming community.

After his education at Mangu High School, Njeru went on to graduate in actuarial science at the University of Nairobi in 2009. He became a fellow of the Institute of Actuaries in December 2011. He also completed a CFA financial analysis qualification in 2015 and MBA from Strathmore Business School in 2018.

He worked at UAP Insurance for almost four years before joining Deloitte in South Africa in 2012 as a consulting actuary. In 2014, he was promoted to become director of actuarial and insurance advisory. He left in 2018 to focus on his work at Pula as co-CEO.
