FOUNDER AND CEO
Vanessa Samu-Ajiduah, MBA, CLP
Vanessa Samu-Ajiduah, your Value Chain Strategist, Founder of BackupAssist Consulting LLC, and MenT4Her®, provides Corporations with Value/Supply Chain solutions, and Women and Girls with the inspiration, training, and the network needed to realize their full potential.
Before starting her business in 2017, Vanessa was a Global Director of Purchasing for one of the industry leaders in the design and manufacture of high quality, high performance IT infrastructure solutions and services for Data Centers, Intelligent Buildings and Enterprise LANs. She has also worked in Supply Chain Management leadership capacity in other industries, including Aerospace & Defense, HVAC, and Logisitcs.
Vanessa’s passion for working with Women and Girls realize their full potential came out of her observations of lack of Women, especially minority Women at the top. Although Vanessa’s path is divinely ordered, and she achieved unprecedented career success in male dominated industries, she realized that most times Women and Girls are left behind. The idea of MenT4Her® was founded with a goal of inspiring, equipping, empowering, and connecting women through workshops, training, business strategy consulting, mentoring, networking and sponsorship.
Vanessa holds a Bachelor of Business Administration in e-Business & Supply Chain Management from Tennessee State University and a Master of Business Administration in Finance from The University of Hartford. She also holds certifications in Six Sigma and Lean Management.
Vanessa lives in Bristol, Connecticut USA, with her husband and two kids. In her free time, Vanessa loves baking cakes, blogging, fashion designing, and interior designing.
