CEO Announcement


On behalf of the iSDA Board and team, I am delighted to announce Jamie Collinson as our new Chief Executive Officer.

Jamie has been instrumental to iSDA’s development since joining as Chief Technology Officer in 2020. His appointment to CEO reflects our firm belief, demonstrated over iSDA’s initial discovery phase, that a technology and science-driven approach will unlock agricultural productivity across the African continent.

Jamie is a world-class technologist, and has a demonstrated track record of growing early stage businesses to success. I have every confidence that his skills and leadership will take iSDA through our next phase of maturity into industry leadership, and accelerate our mission to bring individually tailored advice to millions of farmers across Africa.

I would like to thank Jonathan Crouch for his years of invaluable leadership to iSDA, and his untiring energy and passion for agriculture in Africa. We stand truly indebted to him, and wish him every success in his next step.

Gareth Davies Board Chair, iSDA
