Marie-Alix de Putter, President of the Bluemind Foundation, named “Best Woman Leader in Africa”


The French-Cameroonian Marie-Alix de Putter, President of the Bluemind Foundation and CEO of HEMLEY Productions, named “Best Woman Leader in Africa” (special mention) at the 2022 edition of the Africa Investments Forum & Awards (AIFA).

The AIFA brings together every year the leading private and public decision-makers operating on the African continent: CEOs, managing directors, investment directors, international directors, experts, and institutional players. Awards winners are selected by an independent jury-panels made up of more than 80 sectors experts.

Also nominated for the award were Déborah Diallo (Diallo Law Firm); Gwen Mwaba (Afreximbank); Lamia Merzouki (Casablanca Finance City); Laureen Kouassi-Olsson (Birimian Holding), Ola Brown (Flying Doctors Healthcare Investment Company) and Toyin F. Sanni – gold award (Emerging Africa Group).

“While mental health struggles in a time frame that is almost never favorable to it, I thank AIFA for this award, which recognizes the commitment of the Bluemind Foundation teams to the mental health of African populations. To all the young women watching, I would like to remind you that what is important is always to ask yourself: “How can I contribute to having a positive impact that will make life much better for the people I work with and for?“, says Marie-Alix de Putter, President of the Bluemind Foundation.

As a reminder, Marie-Alix de Putter was named in September 2021 as one of the 30 most innovative personalities of the African continent by the American magazine QUARTZ.
