Dana Rissley

A thought leader on doing business in Emerging Markets and an entrepreneur with a diverse skillset developed over more than a decade spent in various corporate roles. She relocated to South Africa from the United States in 2015, taking up a role as Financial Director of the South African entities for the largest US manufacturer of rolling stock. In her first few months on the African continent, the need for job creation and skills transfer & development was evident. That need was so immediate and apparent that in 2018, Dana left her corporate role to focus on finding ways to catalyse economic growth and inclusion, helping to make the proverbial “pie” bigger (and more inclusive) for all. Dana is a co-founder at Utando Social Impact, a consulting firm that seeks to find innovative solutions to enhancing sustainable and effective collaboration between business, government and society.
