Mohamadou Diallo founded Cio Mag, a pan-African IT magazine read in more than 20 countries, in Marrakesh in 2006. He is also its publishing editor.

To help strengthen ties between Africa and the rest of the world, Cio Mag organizes an annual summit on Africa’s digital evolution. The summit, held in Paris for the past eight years, brings together government officials, start-ups and private citizens from Africa and around the world to discuss the changes brought about by today’s digital world.

From 2007 to 2015, Mr. Diallo was editor-in-chief of Réseau Telecom Network magazine and worked with media outlets such as Jeune Afrique, Les Échos and l’Observateur.

For the past decade, Mr. Diallo has organized the annual Digital African Tour, which stops in cities across Africa to promote the use of digital technology as a tool for social and economic inclusion. Initially, these meetings were aimed mostly at management and IT personnel from the public and private sectors.

Mr. Diallo also helped found a dozen CIO clubs in Africa, as well as the CIO African Network, which provides a forum for discussion of best practices between CIOs from 15 African countries.

Mohamadou Diallo earned a degree from the European Management Institute (ISEG) as well as a graduate diploma in computer science and communications from Paris VII.
