John Maritim

Director of Economic Planning @ Elgeyo Marakwet County

I have served for more than a decade in the public sector as an Economist. I am currently the Director of Economic Planning, Elgeyo Marakwet County, Kenya responsible for leading, coordinating and facilitating economic planning, policy formulation and budget preparation processes. My passion to integrate citizen inputs and incorporate best practices from other development actors for appropriate governance was borne out of my desire to institute acceptable, open, participatory, inclusive and sustainable culture in the development process.

I hold a Masters degree in Development Economics from the National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies (GRIPS), Tokyo, Japan and a Bachelors degree in Economics from Moi University, Eldoret, Kenya.
