James Mworia, who lives in Nairobi, Kenya, is the unbelievably young CEO of one of the largest investment companies in East Africa - Centum Investments.

"Be world class at what you are doing."

- James Mworia, CEO of Centum Investments

Since he took over in 2008, total assets of the company have grown by over 100 percent.

And squash-playing James ranks sixth on the Forbes list of young and powerful African men.

So how will he handle the power dynamics as they go through the tasks and trials?

(And in the time it has taken you to read this, he could have made you a fortune ...)
