Nairobi, 29 May 2020: Open Capital Advisors, an Africa-based management consulting and financial advisory firm, is excited to welcome Tibor Almássy to lead its Capital Markets practice and join its senior management team based in Nairobi.

Tibor brings over 30 years of professional experience to Open Capital, having advised clients across capital markets and public sectors on transactions, strategies, and a wide range of Corporate Finance matters, including infrastructure PPPs, energy sector development, and private equity and debt funding.

Prior to joining Open Capital, Tibor was a Partner at PwC for over 15 years, in both European and East African offices. He was appointed Global Lead for PwC in their Valuations practice and the Eastern Europe Lead for Capital Projects & Infrastructure. In Africa, he was appointed Lead for PwC’s transactions across East Africa and led the Deals practice across sectors in the East African Markets. Globally, Tibor has advised major corporates, investors, and governments – in East Africa this has included KPLC, SGRF, the Kenyan PPP unit, and KPC, as well as regional corporates and investors. Over the course of his career, Tibor has worked with numerous government agencies, private equity firms, sovereign wealth funds, multilateral agencies, and private sector clients across Africa, Central and Eastern Europe Markets, and Western Europe.

In his new role, Tibor will help Open Capital extend its work in capital markets, enabling more global clients to engage with Africa’s markets and supporting a wide range of African businesses and investors.

“We are delighted to welcome Tibor to our senior management team. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in deals & client advisory which we believe will be invaluable to our firm as we expand our Capital Markets portfolio and support a broad range of clients in Africa as well as global clients focused on Africa,” said Open Capital Managing Partner, Andreas Zeller.

“I am very excited to return to Kenya and to have the opportunity to grow Open Capital’s business across the African continent. I trust that my previous experience across Africa and my career at PwC will be fully leveraged to the benefit of OCA’s current and new clients. OCA represents a new type of advisory firm, providing a services blend, talent development model, and long-term approach that I believe is uniquely effective to enable Africa’s growth. This is a great opportunity and challenge and I look forward to joining the team,” said Tibor Almássy.
