Louis Deppe

Living in an emerging market and with more than 15 years experience working in the property sector in both Sub-Saharan and South Africa, Louis has seen first-hand how an expanding middle class and growing economy can transform the built environment and impact people's everyday lives.

Louis began his career as a property developer working on light industrial warehousing and commercial office projects in South Africa before moving to Standard Bank, one of the country's largest banks, ultimately heading up the business unit responsible for property asset finance outside South Africa. He became part of Actis's bricks and mortar in 2005.

Attracted by our long-term commitment to Africa, he wanted to develop projects that would sustain and reflect the progress overtaking the country's emerging economies and contribute to their development.
