WHO IS MARY THUO?

 

Mary Wanja Thuo is the founder and managing director of Cityscape Trends Services Limited, a provider of superior and sustainable environmental services in the sanitation and cleaning sector. She has a wealth of experience in business and the service industry. Before she left formal employment in 2005, she had initially worked as a waitress in the coast region of Kenya. Due to political upheaval during the time, she left the coast region and relocated to Nairobi, where she was employed in beauty salons, for a period of 3 years, before finally quitting formal employment and venturing into self-employment.

She founded a beauty salon—‘Talk of The Town Executive Salon and Barber Shop’, a business venture that turned out quite successful and which she managed for 10 years, before venturing into Cityscape Trends, still in the service industry. She later sold off the beauty salon, in order to fully focus on Cityscape Trends.
Mary applied and was accepted by the GoldMan Sach’s Foundation Centre for Executive Entrepreneurs Development program (CEED) which is run in collaboration with the USIU (United States International University) Africa, in Nairobi. This was the turning point for Mary. She learnt and implemented professional business practices, including proper book -keeping, which enabled success and sustainability in her business.

Headquartered in Nairobi, Cityscape Trends serves various NGOs, private and public institutions in Kenya, East Africa.
