Oluwagbenga Bankole
Following the rumour making round in the media that the immediate past Chief Operation Officer and Executive Director of 141Worldwide, Mrs. Bunmi Oke will soon floated a new agency called Ladybird Limited, the advertising czar has confirmed the report exclusively to BRANDINFO.

The former President of Advertising Agencies Association of Nigeria (AAAN) last month officially resigned from 141Worldwide after 12 years at the helm of affairs.

Bunmi Oke exclusively confirmed to BRANDINFO yesterday’s evening that the agency which is known as Ladybird Limited will be officially unveiled on the 1st of September, 2017.

While speaking on why she left 141Worldwide in an exclusive interview with BRANDINFO recently, the prominent and world-class advertising expert said; “there is a point in time in life that you sit down and ask yourself what are your next steps. Just like is applicable to a brand, it is the same thing as far as human being is concern. I simply took the decision because I have a lot of career adventures I want to go into which some of them are ideas I gathered over the years and I want to do them now before I get old. It is a career decision to go on a career adventure.”

She said that it is good to know that she is leaving an agency that is one of the best in the country, adding that she is leaving when the ovation is loud.

Bunmi Oke was the pioneer Chief Operating Officer/Executive Director of 141 Worldwide. She led a prolific team of professionals over the years, and built 141 into a prominent world-class advertising agency in Nigeria.

She is a British-Born Nigerian, who started her career in advertising at Grant Advertising (McCann-Erickson affiliate) in 1986, where she worked as a PR Executive/Account Management trainee. Joining LTC (now JWT ) advertising in 1989, her exceptional organizational and presentation skills resulted in her rising through the ranks rapidly over 10 years and became the first female client service director. She went to the best schools in Nigeria and hence is an alumni of the University of Lagos, Queens College, Yaba, Lagos and Holy Child College, Obalende, Lagos.

She was also a recipient of the 2011 Vital Voices WIMBIZ&Exxon-Mobill ToT EinH training in Uganda programme for a female marketing communications specialist in Nigeria.
