Fragomen, the world’s leading provider of immigration services, announces that Willys Mac’Olale has been promoted to Immigration Director for Kenya.

Willys, who previously served as Senior Manager in Kenya, will now oversee the collaboration with multinational corporations to ensure a seamless cross-border experience. He will be responsible for the management of the East African team, ensuring effective and efficient service delivery of end-to-end immigration solutions, compliance advice, and government strategies to a wide range of clients.

“I am very proud and honored to be part of this great organization,” said Willys Mac’Olale.  “I look forward to building strategic partnerships and continuing to build on this incredible legacy which has already contributed so much to our community.”

Willys has worked in the immigration sector for 19 years. He has extensive experience in leadership, strategy, client relations, and communications.  He joined Fragomen Kenya in 2014 as a Senior Immigration Consultant after serving for over 10 years as a civil servant in the Kenyan government. During his government service, Willys held a number of progressive immigration officer roles, gaining a wide range of experience through a variety of immigration and border control assignments.
