General manager

Swiss Fresh Water - Switzerland

After 14 years of successful management positions in a large panafrican group in automotive industry, Thomas GAJAN joined a small and innovative company scaling access to clean water through technology and jobs creation. He also advises a few start ups.
SFW provides populations of West and Central Africa with quality water at an affordable price, using a franchise model, run by local entrepreneurs. To do this, we build a network of local, franchised kiosks that we equip with connected water treatment units and support with IT services (web platform – PAYGO etc), technical and marketing assistance. The water is produced and then marketed in bulk and reusable bottles, according to an environmentally friendly, cost-effective, job-creating and socially responsible model.
