Adrian Kawuba is founder, chairman and chief executive officer of Kawuba Enterprises (KE), a diversified privately held conglomerate. He is responsible for the overall vision, strategy, financial objectives, and investment priorities as well as overseeing KE’s expansive portfolio.
Mr. Kawuba is a strategically-focused, financially-disciplined, results-oriented visionary leader with a proven long track record of success across a number of industries, markets and categories. A globally-seasoned serial entrepreneur, operating executive and investor, he has strong experience building high-performing companies and teams from scratch, hiring and managing top talent, developing & deploying targeted investment funds, scaling operations, growing revenue, orchestrating successful turnarounds and creating winning partnerships.
In late 2011, Mr. Kawuba left his corporate job in finance at 22 years old and began laying the foundation for launching businesses based on his ideas, passions, interests, and sectors of the economy he believed had the greatest opportunities for change. In setting a holding entity Kawuba Enterprises, his goal was to create an institution in perpetuity where entrepreneurship, innovation and company-creation would be combined with capital, talent, resources, expertise, and an extensive global network to build a diverse and balanced portfolio, and make a lasting contribution to society, socially, economically, and environmentally. AK Sports Group was the first experiment of this thesis. After rapid growth, Kawuba leveraged the foundational experience and used the profits to diversify into a variety of businesses of which today form Kawuba Enterprises. The Ugandan-native has gone from working out of a coffee shop close to a decade ago, to today overseeing a global portfolio with significant revenues.
