Internet browser company Opera has picked Eddie Ndichu to drive its Fintech strategy in Africa even as it prepares to set up an office in Nairobi.

In a statement Tuesday, Opera said that it had appointed Mr Ndichu as the managing director and vice president for Fintech in Africa.

“This appointment is the first step in the company’s plans to have a Kenyan office which will become the East African hub,” said Opera.

Mr Ndichu’s appointment is in line with a diversification strategy that has seen the firm dip its feet into the financial services market.
