Ms. Hope Murera is the Managing Director of ZEP-Re (PTA Reinsurance Company), a specialized institution of the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) charged with the development of the insurance industry in the region.
She holds a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) degree from Makerere University, an MBA from IMD International, Lausanne Switzerland and is an alumnus of Stanford Business School where she majored in strategic leadership. Hope has over 20 years’ working experience in the insurance and reinsurance industry in Africa.
Ms. Murera, a mother of two, is passionate about girl-child education, mentorship and empowerment of women in the workplace. This has seen the ZEP-RE’s core CSR develop around supporting girl-child education in several member states. She has put in place a Young Professionals Programme (YPP) with a bias on girls. Through deliberate actions such as these, ZEP-RE has achieved gender parity across its ranks and currently 30% of the management team are ladies.
Hope sits on the Boards of African Trade Insurance Agency (ATI), the Organization of Eastern and Southern African Insurers (OESAI), Uganda Reinsurance Company (Uganda Re) and the Global Give Back Circle, a girl mentorship and empowerment organization.
