Neo Media ushers In Okeme in grand style

 Neo Media and Marketing last night held a grand reception to usher in the newly elected President of the Advertisers Association of Nigeria, ADVAN, David Okeme who is also the Brand Building Director at Unilever Plc.

Okeme became the new ADVAN President after he managed to squeeze out a slim victory over another top shot in the industry, Onyekachi Onubogu, Director, Commercial, Promasidor Nigeria at the AGM of the association.

At the reception were a host of industry big names, most of whom have had some level of relationship with the new President, especially in the line of duty. Some of the people who spoke expressed their utmost respect for Okeme, praising him as a man of high integrity and strict work ethics.

Kelechi Nwosu, Managing Director of TBWA/Concept and President, Association of Advertising Agencies of Nigeria, AAAN, express confidence in the ability of Okeme to deliver on his promises and take ADVAN to the next level. He also looked forward to a healthy working relationship and collaboration between the AAAN and ADVAN under Okeme’s leadership.

The presence of big names from across all the sections of the integrated marketing communication industry at the reception was indeed a testimony of Okeme’s appeal and admiration by IMC practitioners from both the agencies and clients’ side.

And the occasion afforded the Unilever top shot to again articulate his plans for the association. “One of the things that ADVAN will look into is how to leverage on the industry such that we can build greater efficiency in terms of advertising returns,” Okeme said.

Also elected to serve in the new ADVAN with Okeme are Joan Ihekwaba, General Manager, Marketing, UACN Foods, 1st Vice President, Bimbo Alabi, Marketing Manager, SoKlin 2nd Vice-President, Bukunola Ogunnusi PR & Advert Manager, Toyota Nigeria, Treasurer and Samson Oloche Marketing Manager, Non-Alcoholic drinks, NB Plc Publicity Secretary.
