Our History

CarvinClay People Development was founded with the vision to support African businesses to be transgenerational and sustainable by providing unmatched HR support that enables them to survive in the ever-changing world of work.

The name “CarvinClay” symbolises the African art of carving wood and moulding clay. Just as wood and clay is shaped under the guiding hands of a skilful sculptor, CarvinClay finds, moulds and shapes professionals into high performing talent and shapes organisations through their human capital management to build successful businesses.

As a HR generalist at heart, International Human Capital Expert and Founder, Irene Asare started CarvinClay People Development with a unique sense of purpose to shape the workforce of today that stems from two and half decades of strategic experience in improving efficiency for many companies across multiple geographies and industry sectors.
