Last week, the Board of Chams Plc announced the appointment of Tomiwa Aladekomo as a non-executive director following the retirement of Mrs Olufunke AlomoOluwa who served on the board from 2016.
In the announcement which was sent to the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE), the board also noted that AlomoOluwa’s appointment ended on December 1, 2019.
Mr Aladekomo has served as a member of the board of ChamSwitch Plc from January 2015 before his recent appointment as a non-executive director on the board of Chams Plc. He has also worked for Smartcity Resorts as director, where he supervised the management team and created strategies with the board.
As a part of his 9 years of professional experience, Aladekomo served as Art Manager for Atlantic Records in New York. He has worked with several media groups which include THISDAY, Guardian, Quirk Limited, and Big Cabal Media where he currently serves as the Chief Executive Officer.
In his role as the non-executive director, Mr Tomiwa Aladekomo will bring his experience in Technology, Media and Marketing to Chams Plc with an aim to give them an edge in the market.
Tomiwa also has the added advantage of being a fellow of the prestigious Archbishop Tutu Leadership Fellowship, run by the African Leadership Institute.
He has a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Boston, Massachusetts. He also has a master’s in Cultural Anthropology from Columbia University in New York.
This year has seen Chams Plc make a few changes to its personnel team to ensure maximum growth across all levels. Recently, the company appointed Gavin Young as its new Chief Executive Officer following the exit of Olufemi Williams.
Perhaps, Tomiwa Aladekomo’s appointment is one more move by the company to sustain its growth. It could also be a continuation of the legacy of the founder, his father, Mr Ademola Aladekomo.
