Real estate business management and leadership are inseparable. The ability to innovate new ideas is equally as important as the ability to manage them. The paradox, however, is that not every manager qualifies as a great leader. An effective leader not only produces the vision for the business, the recipe for success but also the actions needed to accomplish it. In this light, The Lesedi group welcomes its new member, Mr. Simon. A. Day as the Group CEO effective December 2021.
A new boss is like being a new captain of the football team who shapes the team’s morale and is the example of what a dedicated player should look like.
Simon is a seasoned, well-respected and proven leader with an exceptional record. In his previous roles, he has delivered substantial strategic and operational progress over a sustained period, delivering value for all stakeholders in the business while developing a distinct and cohesive culture, focused on customer care and service. It is apparent that Simon is a great fit for The Lesedi Group and is well qualified to lead the business into the next phase as we continue to drive a program of change to become the leading real estate company offering affordable solutions of good value to thousands of Kenyans.
Simon’s appointment is a clear reflection of the company’s current state: ready to take on the future and fired up after another strong year of growth and satisfied customers. He brings two decades of experience to the company and has a proven record of taking customer-centric real estate companies such as The Lesedi Group to the next level.
Stephen R. Covey once said that management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall. With his passion, vision, and expertise, his leadership as CEO will be instrumental in driving The Lesedi Group to deliver new impact and advance progress toward changing the face of real estate in Kenya.
