CEO of Sodexo UK
Vondo became a Marketing Trainee at Invesco at the age of 18. Coming from a council estate outside of London having arrived in the UK with his parents as a toddler, it wasn’t an obvious choice.
For his peers, The City is viewed as having little career prospects, no room for elevation, and no potential for financial prosperity. He was supported by Investment 2020 with the skills and networks to apply for roles after successfully completing his A-Levels. Dialogue and mentoring has enabled him to succeed and he is now in a full-time role.

A place to go and
people to speak to
Having Vondo as part of the team at Invesco has furthered a culture focussed on diversity of thought and enabled them to shape their business for a more inclusive workforce. This inspires the collegial culture and decision-making ethos that makes them more robust and representative of the world they live and work in.
As a speaker at the Power of Diversity Breakfast Vondo has had a platform from which he can discuss what is important to young people and speak to senior leaders whom he would never have even considered meeting before.
It is this success that he wishes to share with his peers to encourage them to strive for more and to challenge organisations to do more to open their doors to extremely talented and ambitious young people like himself.
Opportunities are tangible, realistic and attainable.
