About Us

OUR HISTORY

BLUE NILE is one of the North Eastern States of South Sudan. The river BLUE NILE cuts through this state to the Nile River. Back in 2011, a year after South Sudan became independent, one of the founding partners visited the new country as part of business delegation. This visit was filled with hope for the new country and its people. And it was decided there after that our consulting company will be BLUE NILE, inspired by the resilience of the people of South Sudan.

The company was founded by a husband and wife team who are both entrepreneurs with experience in several industries, from Human Capital to Logistics and Supply Chain and Healthcare, among others.

In addition, the partners have held executive positions in the corporate sector in South Africa.
