MTN, UBA CEOs win CIMG Marketing Man, Woman of the year
He spent the day burying his uncle and spent the night receiving the most prestigious CIMG Marketing Man of the Year 2016 award at the 28th edition of the National Marketing Performance Awards held at the State House in Accra, Saturday night.
While it may be a contrasting fortune for Mr Ebenezer Twum Asante on the day, the CEO of Telecom giants MTN is looking ahead for many such momentous occasions, when his company shall connect every Ghanaian life and ensure a digital economy.
He was not the only man in glory. A woman with a sense of conviction and a determination to carry her team to victory was also glorious.
And when she was high up there with that enviable CIMG Marketing Woman of the year accolade, Mrs Abiola Bawuah did not forget her team down there at UBA who together have made her feat enviable.
As CEO of UBA, the first Ghanaian female to head such a position in her institution, Mrs Bawuah threw the challenge to women with a clarion call, that it is possible for women to reach the highest pinnacle of their dreams if they put their minds to it.
The same way the two lifted their most enviable shields of honour with infectious smiles, so did 38 others, including Multimedia Group receive their badges of honour for impacting Ghanaian businesses and society as well as transforming the country in the most extraordinary way.
