Wakanow appoints Olateru-Olagbegi Group VP Marketing
Wakanow has appointed Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi as Group Vice President, Marketing.
The former OAP, actor, and producer announced her new position on her Instagram page, where she gushed over it.
She disclosed that she received an offer a year ago but declined it. She originally declined after going through the hard procedure of mailing her CV, interviews, and all because she worried.
The mother of one mentioned that because she was terrified, she made up a lot of excuses for why she couldn’t take the job, but this year, she’s done running and making excuses and is enthusiastic about the new challenge.
In her words;
I am excited about this new chapter and I am eager to use my talents and education in a new way.
Three words to describe how I feel now, excited, terrified, energised.
“I’m excited about this new role. Terrified of how huge this new assignment is. Energised because I have a new assignment that I have to tackle.
When I got my first job a year ago, I fled. The offer was in my email and I panicked. I turned it down after being interviewed, sending my resume and all that.
I felt so so bad afterwards. I kept making excuses; I don’t have the time, my baby is barely one, she needs me.
That’s what I do when I am scared. This year, I’m ready, no running, no excuses.
OAP, fashion entrepreneur, executive producer and now VP in marketing.
Why not, you can be many things and you can be everything you want to be. I am excited about this new challenge and I am grateful to Wakanow for the warm welcome.
I am so thankful to all my friends and family for their support. Let’s make history.
