Our Team



Lincoln started working in Africa in 1993 and started African Energy in 2002.  He loves every part of Africa, but  he says the best thing about Africa is the people.



None of us know when Deb comes to work – she is already here when we get in!  She keeps a thousand details moving smoothly and manages our very complicated operations across Africa.  Deb also manages the money, so keep your account in order and you will be her friend.


Sales – Southern Africa

Dane is an Arizona ranch kid who grew up to be an electrician and decorated Home Depot manager. We are grateful to have his help in organizing our Depots and handling business south of the Copperbelt.


Sales – Nigeria, Ghana

David was a professional runner competing with Patrick and worked worldwide for Adidas. David makes life look easy and smooth. His Georgia Tech degree in business comes in handy in the company. Nigeria and Ghana keep him hopping.


Sales – East Africa

Patrick serves as our general manager and most senior team member. Originally from Burundi, Patrick travelled the world as a professional runner, like David, but is now raising his family in rural Arizona. Except for all those days when he is on an airplane coming to see you!


Sales – West Africa

Steve lives in Lomé so that he can be close to his market. He lived in France for years as the European technical manager for Rain Bird Europe and joined us after a few years as a solar installer. He loves heading out to the bush to troubleshoot systems and is our most detailed trainer.
