Jeff Vanden Berghe

Born and raised in Belgium, Jeff Vanden Berghe always had a dream to impact lives for the better. While working in Belgium, he helped build the first Pan-European fibre-optic network.

In 2010, Jeff moved to Africa, where he lived and worked in Burundi building the first fibre-optic network as the CTO at Burundi Backbone Systems.

Jeff later spent time as the CEO of Liquid Telecom Rwanda and moved to hold the position of Group executive CEO of Liquid Telecom Botswana before relocating to Kenya in 2018 to be the Managing Director of Bboxx, Kenya.

Jeff holds a bachelor’s degree in Economics, a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering, and an MBA in International Management.

Under his leadership at Bboxx, the company has grown immensely. He has doubled the number of staff, tripled the number of shops across Kenya, quadrupled the customer base and in tandem increased the product and services portfolio. Jeff is passionate about renewable energy and continues to look for ways to impact people’s lives by electrifying them one household at a time.

His ambition, in line with the company’s goal of unlocking potential is not to give people a temporary fix to their electricity issues but to offer long-term, affordable solutions by providing first class services provided the Bboxx Kenya team.

During his free time, Jeff enjoys travelling, playing squash, and spending time with family and friends.
