Meet Head of Business Development at Uber Mimi Omokri

She is young, fierce and talented, Mimi Omokri is Uber’s Head of Business Development for Sub-Saharan Africa, one of the fast-growing regions for the company.

Prior to Uber, Mimi led commercial payments and built the Sub-Saharan Africa enterprise business at Mastercard from the ground-up at a time when startups were chipping away at incumbents and new technology was creating opportunities for all players.

Name an innovation that’s changed commercial payments—mobile, e-commerce, AI, virtual—and Mimi has been there in the trenches.

She also understands the importance of bringing leading brands together through partnerships. Mimi has forged relationships between Amadeus and many notable companies — Citibank, Harrods, British Airways, Visa, Ethiopian Airlines, MTN Group and others — to give people in Europe, Middle East and Africa easier access to their bank accounts and the ability to send payments on the platform.

Prior to Mastercard, Mimi spent over 8 years working at top firms such as Jumia Group, Iroko Partners and American Express in Europe, holding P&L and leadership roles in strategy, sales, marketing, partnerships and product development.
