We’re a whole lot more than the sum of our parts.

The Sunbird Group was founded in 2014 by Michael Aldridge and William Sykes - serial entrepreneurs who share an in-depth knowledge of business services and a love affair with Africa. Sunbird is a self-financed organisation that combines the expertise of proven African operators and local staff with some of the UK’s most successful industry leaders – drawn from the likes of Arthur Andersen, Morgan Stanley, KPMG, PwC, Kroll and Carillion. 

All our major stakeholders have a history in Africa and/or a personal passion for unlocking the potential of the region. They bring together extensive knowledge of emerging markets in general – especially the oil and gas industries - and East Africa more specifically.

The Sunbird Group brings a range of companies under one umbrella. Since 2012, we spent two years conducting on-the-ground reconnaissance, expanding on our local content networks, developing the scope and the integration of our resources. Since 2014, we have now won major construction, property and support services contracts with a variety of regional and multinational businesses.
