LONDON Advertising Appoints Ambassador To Africa On Back Of Significant Growth In 2015
LONDON Advertising, today announced the full time appointment of Brigitte Sesu Tilley-Gyado to drive new business for the agency across Africa. Brigitte Sesu is a Cambridge graduate who had a successful career in business development in financial services in London and Switzerland prior to establishing her own business and marketing consultancy in Nigeria.
LONDON’s innovative model delivers ‘London-quality strategic and creative thinking anywhere in the world’ from one office and has run work in more countries than WPP, with 179,000 staff, has offices in.
Michael Moszynski, CEO of LONDON Advertising said “rather than follow the traditional route of opening full-service offices, we are establishing ‘Embassies’ in key regional hubs, where our ‘Ambassadors’ will be based, acting as a local point of contact through which clients can access the unrivalled strategic and creative skill set that we have in London.”
“We have selected Africa for our first Ambassadorial role as it is the fastest growing continent today and where we have significant experience helping clients grow rapidly in the telecom, airline, luxury, banking, oil, political and country brand sectors.”
“We are thrilled to have been able to attract such a high calibre individual as Brigitte and that she is so energised by the opportunity to drive our progress in this exciting continent”.
