Meet Tauseef Taki: Our Intellectual Business Development Manager
Tauseef Taki joined MarketForce in May 2021 where he started off as a Fulfillment Coordinator in the Operations Team. He then moved on to join the Enterprise team as the Business Development Manager and still continues to share his skills and expertise to date. His role mainly concentrates on strategic partnerships for the company’s Apps which are Marketplace and Digital Financial Services respectively.
After graduating university, Tauseef worked in logistics in a company in Mombasa, where he managed to pilot the usage of RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags on pellets, a first of its kind in Kenya. Working in this capacity subsequently led him to become deeply engrossed in all things RFID and his passion eventually enabled him to become an expert in the sector. During his tenure he was able to design container locks, livestock solutions and a lot more ground-breaking logistical solutions.
Following this, he created Sapatos Kenya, a manufacturing company that exclusively uses recycled materials to create shoes. The company was however successfully sold in 2018, and this led Tauseef to make a decision to re-enter the job market as a Project Manager for a foundation developing a Vocational Centre.
Outside MarketForce, Tauseef is somewhat of an athlete. He enjoys playing golf, tennis and swimming. He also has a keen interest in the culinary arts and loves to cook and mostly experiment with fusion cuisine.
Beyond that, he enjoys immersing himself into learning new skills and is currently studying a course on how to treat those with Dementia hoping to learn how to take better care of his ageing grandmother.
MarketForce is a market-leading start-up that develops cutting-edge technology and is building the most comprehensive field sales and distribution platform for emerging markets. In Tauseef’s own words, “MarketForce was introduced to me by a friend, and the tale of two Kenyan founders solving an African retail dilemma attracted my interest right away.
Since joining the company, I’ve grown to admire our CEO’s measured demeanour paired with audacious ideas.”
