About Wayne Sprauve

Throughout his career, entrepreneur and international business expert Wayne Sprauve has identified and acted on economic growth opportunities in under-acknowledged markets. He began his career as a graduate of Boston University School of Law, where he combined study toward his juris doctor with completion of all available MBA core curriculum courses. Having previously completed graduate-level courses in international relations and government at Harvard University, Wayne Sprauve entered international politics as assistant counsel to the governor of the US Virgin Islands, followed by service as legal advisor to the Senate president.

Backed by the knowledge of the territory's economy that these positions provided to him, Wayne Sprauve then opened an independent law office in St. Thomas. Over the course of six years, he handled a variety of corporate, real estate, and criminal cases, as well as international matters. Moving to strengthen cooperation among world economies, Mr. Sprauve then co-founded Southbridge International Trade Corporation in South Africa, where he functioned as CEO. There, he encouraged the establishment of US trade offices in South Africa and promoted the benefits of the Africa Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) to other African corporations. Now chairman and CEO of African Premier Airlines, a company he founded, he continues to encourage African economic interests and promote connection with world economies.
