With the addition of Crown Lusaka, Crown is now conducting business in ten cities and eight countries in Africa including: South Africa, Tanzania, Botswana, Nigeria, Ghana, Egypt, Kenya and now Zambia. The Crown Group’s newest operation is situated in a business hub of the city. It is a strategic investment that aims to serve the increased demand of the growing region.
Crown Lusaka branch is managed by Leon Thom, who has an extensive background and years of industry experience in records management services, relocations management and global mobility services.
