The Dean of Strathmore Business School(SBS) has received with great sadness the news of the unexpectedly demise of Bernard Droux. Aged 59, Bernard Droux was the Managing Partner of the Swiss private bank Lombard Odier Darier Hentsch & Cie (LODH) based in Genève, Switzerland.
His death comes shortly after his meeting with Dr. George Njenga in Genève in late 2014. Dr Njenga had embarked on a series of meetings in Europe with the aim of fundraising for Strathmore University as well as to give a brief on his initiative known as Ongoza Africa. The initiative aims at stimulating economic growth through promoting virtuous leadership skills among the youth in Africa. Bernard was scheduled to visit SBS this year.
Mr. Droux was a close family friend of our colleague Grégoire Piller. Dr. Njenga together with the entire SBS family extend a message of condolence to Grégoire and the family of the deceased.
