As more and more companies are building a digital footprint or touchpoints with their customers, and software development is being used to solve the world’s problems, Nitesh Singh believes that few fields are more exciting than that of digital transformation.  

Digital marketplaces will disrupt major industries over the coming years, which is why he is passionate about turning digital investments into financial and business outcomes for his clients. He emphasises that, to be high performing companies, they need to transform.

Over the last 20 years, Singh has become an authority on driving digital transformation at large telco and media businesses across the African continent, including Nigeria, Kenya, Botswana and Zambia, among others, with specialist skills in contracting and governance processes associated with complex projects.

Singh joined Accenture in the latter part of 2005, so that he could be at the cutting edge of digital transformation and be accountable for the delivery of large-scale revenue generation, cost containment and right sizing, enabling top and bottom-line growth for captains of industry across the continent.  

Singh firmly believes that - whether you’re a small-scale family run operation, or a global enterprise - moving to digital is essential to remaining relevant. 

His role at Accenture involves sharing industry trends with clients and partnering with them to develop their growth agenda and help them determine where they should focus their energy. This includes providing advice on the impact of the coming 4IR, disruptive business models and the need to rotate the business to the "new" – cloud, digital, next generation e-commerce, security, artificial intelligence (AI) and big data.

His major achievements include leading an assessment across 23 African operations, focused on process and technology effectiveness (2019-2020), and becoming the first Master Technological Architect in Accenture’s African practice, making him a member of an elite team of global executives that hold this qualification within the global practice. 

Singh has been invited as a moderator and speaker at industry events such as AfricaCom and holds a bachelor’s Degree in Information Technology and Business Information Systems from the University of KwaZulu-Natal.
