We’re a whole lot more than the sum of our parts.

The Sunbird Group was founded in 2014 by Michael Aldridge and William Sykes – serial entrepreneurs who share an in-depth knowledge of business services and a love affair with Africa. Sunbird is a self-financed organisation that combines the expertise of proven African operators and local staff with some of the UK’s most successful industry leaders – drawn from the likes of Arthur Andersen, Morgan Stanley, KPMG, PwC, Kroll and Carillion. 

All our major stakeholders have a history in Africa and/or a personal passion for unlocking the potential of the region. They bring together extensive knowledge of emerging markets in general – especially the oil and gas industries – and East Africa more specifically.

The Sunbird Group brings a range of companies under one umbrella. The last two years have been spent in on-the-ground reconnaissance, expanding on our local content networks, developing the scope and the integration of our resources. We’re now a significant employer in the region and perfectly primed to take new businesses forward.
