Partner & Managing Director


Unlocking Growth Through Infrastructure Development

Necessary infrastructure investments in Africa are estimated to exceed $90 billion over the next few years, and such a significant challenge requires an approach that aligns incentives and focuses on delivery, BCG’s Euvin Navoo explains. BCG’s methodology helps focus on fewer, higher-impact projects, accelerate those critical projects, and create very clear milestones that ensure the delivery and execution of immediate goals.

Euvin Naidoo joined The Boston Consulting Group's Johannesburg office in February 2016. He leads BCG's Financial Institutions and Public Sector Practices across Africa.

Euvin's global and pan-African experience over the past 15 years encompasses engagement across more than 20 African countries incorporating investment banking, personal and business banking, insurance, and risk.

In 2009, Euvin was selected as a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum (WEF), and in 2012 he was recruited to the WEF's Global Agenda Councils, serving on the United States Council. He has participated in, led, and moderated key sessions at the WEF since 2010, including the closing plenary session of WEF Africa 2012, which shared a vision for Africa involving solutions across the private, public, and social sectors.

Prior to joining BCG, Euvin worked at Standard Bank, a leading pan-African bank, in corporate and investment banking; he focused on acquisition finance in both the New York and Johannesburg offices. In 2009, he returned to South Africa from the United States to head up Standard Bank's risk appetite and credit portfolio management team, working across all personal and business banking product lines, covering 17 countries across Africa. In 2013, Euvin joined Barclays Africa Regional Management EXCO, where he served as head of strategy for Barclays Africa, leading the bank's strategy across its 11-country "Rest of Africa" portfolio.

Euvin is the coauthor of the Harvard Business School case Nelson Mandela: Turnaround Leader with Prof. Rosabeth Moss Kanter. The case went on to form a key chapter in the New York Times business best-seller, Confidence, focusing on leadership and organizational lessons on how to move complex organizations from cycles of decline to paths of growth and success.

A sought-after business thought leader, Euvin was invited to deliver the opening talk at the inaugural TED Global conference held in Africa, which was aimed at reframing the dialogue on business, trade, and investment on the continent.
