Sharief Harris

Head of Development

Sharief Harris is Red Rocket’s Head of Development. He joined our company as an intern in 2015, soon gaining a wealth of on-the-job experience from his involvement in the nascent phases of our business, which included bid-preparation under South Africa’s REIPPPP and taking our Round 4 REIPPPP projects to Financial Close.
