Postigo holds two Masters degrees in Business Administration: One general degree from the Toulouse Business School and one specialised degree in Services Marketing from the W.P. Carey School of Business. She has also completed an Executive Management Acceleration Programme from INSEAD.

Professionally, Postigo has interned in a number of diplomatic organisations, including the French Embassy in Chile, before she joined the Oxford Business Group in 2004.

In 2008, she moved to the Gulf Finance House for a brief spell of two years, where she occupied the position of Senior Manager for Investment Placement in the Asia and GCC regions. She rejoined the Oxford Business Group in 2010 as the Senior Country Director for Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Gabon & Ghana.

She has been working at the firm’s SSA division since 2016, and will now take over as the Regional Director for the practice. She takes over at a time when businesses across the country are looking for innovative means to drive growth and attract foreign investment. International firms, meanwhile, are looking for expertise to help tailor their operations to individual markets.

Commenting on her appointment, Director of PR and Video Content at Oxford Business Group Marc-André de Blois said, “Elise’s knowledge, expertise and enthusiasm have been instrumental in helping the company extend its reach across the continent at a time when the region’s growth story is a global talking point. I’m delighted that we will be benefiting from her insight into both the more established and nascent markets in this important and fast-developing part of the world.”

“All eyes are on Africa as the African Continental Free Trade Area nears completion and the region’s huge infrastructure drive gains pace. I look forward to working closely with our on-the-ground teams to ensure decision-makers are provided with the latest details of the many investment opportunities that are emerging in these exciting markets," said Postigo.
