When the list of Kenyans who are thriving in the diaspora is compiled, the name of Reverend Evans Kariuki cannot be left out.
The youthful clergyman moved to the US years ago with nearly nothing to his name but today he is among the richest Kenyans living abroad.
Kariuki is the founder of Circle K Supply Chain Solutions Group, a company headquartered in Canal Winchester, Ohio.
The Supply Chain Consulting, Lean Training & Education, and 3PL Solutions Company was founded about 10 years ago and its value is estimated at Sh2.7 billion.
Apart from business, Kariuki is the head of Eternal Life Harvest Center (ELHC) in Knoxville, Tennessee.
Kariuki and his wife Ashley, a native of Knoxville, are the founders and overseers of the evangelistic movement dubbed Firebrand Nation.
Both are graduates of Valor Christian College, where both received ordination into ministry. Kariuki also holds a master’s degree in Operational Excellence from Ohio State University.
He is also an award-winning author and has authored many books including Firebrand—a Supernatural Encounter with God, Fearless and When Heaven Speaks—The Secret of The Red Heifer.
He also serves as the president of Evangelical Youth Alliance—the youth wing of Evangelical Alliance of Kenya.
Kariuki, who was born and raised in Nairobi, is a father of three children Zoe, Zion, and Zechariah. He is the son of former Starehe MP Bishop Margret Wanjiru.
