Chanda, our Managing Director, is responsible for SBZ’s day-to-day-operations, as well as leading the company’s strategy. He joined SBZ in 2005 and has over the last 10 years contributed to the growth of SBZ’s investment banking credentials as the leading advisory firm in the Zambian capital market.
