Clemens Weitz, CEO of ROAM Africa, said, “With Autochek, we have found a company and founding team that will carry on the incredible results Cheki has achieved in Nigeria and Ghana over the last decade in developing a specialist car marketplace, loved and trusted by both car buyers and sellers. Etop and his team have an outstanding record of success in the African automotive market and we are excited to be handing over these assets to them, ensuring continuity of service as we migrate the platforms over. We are also pleased that the Autochek team is committed to working collaboratively with the existing Cheki team and long-term partners. We look forward to seeing all the success they will achieve together”
The current Cheki Nigeria and Cheki Ghana team remains intact with Cheki Nigeria’s current CEO, Chimezie Okonkwo, staying on with the new company.
Cheki Kenya will remain a part of the ROAM Africa portfolio and the sale of Cheki Nigeria and Ghana does not impact Cheki Kenya. Cheki Kenya will continue to focus on establishing solutions for the Kenyan automotive industry and accelerate its investment in tailoring solutions for the Kenyan market specifically.
