Stephen D. Cashin, CEO of Pan African Capital Group, has been granted the title of Knight Commander, Most Venerable Order of the Pioneer, by the President of Liberia, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. Mr. Cashin was honored, in ceremony which took place on July 27th, for his invaluable services rendered to the Liberian people.
Other recipients of distinctions included Dr. Steve Radelet, Georgetown University Economics Professor; Margaret Hilda Kilo, Resident Representative of the African Development Bank; and Rajesh Panjabi, CEO of Last Mile Health.
Of the recipients, President Sirleaf said “We would like to thank them for the time that they've served and the time that they continue to serve, and we have the surety that they will continue to stand by Liberians at all times in great partnership, in great solidarity as we continue along our path of national recovery and development".
Stephen Cashin has been an investor in Liberia for over a decade, and in these ventures, has also maintained a steadfast commitment to the country’s broader economic development. This dedication is perhaps epitomized by his establishment of the Liberian Economic Impact Fund (LEIF), a $50 million private equity vehicle with a mandate to deploy capital in Liberian industries with potential for rapid growth and significant social impact.
Mr. Cashin and the rest of the team at PACG look forward to continuing our fruitful relationship with the country of Liberia for many years to come.
