The Board of Insight Publicis, the leading creative consultancy and marketing communication company in West Africa, has announced its first non-founder Managing Director / Chief Executive Officer in its almost four decades history.
The founder and Chairman of the Board of Insight Publicis, Biodun Shobanjo, announced Feyisola Olubodun as the new leader of the organisation.
He stated that “Feyi will now lead a successful team that continues to deliver unrivalled communication solutions that assist our customers to have profitable interactions with their audience.”

In his words, the new CEO stated: “The vision of our Board of Directors is clear. We shall allow others to follow us as we continue to lead at interpreting what today’s customer’s chat about. It is an honour to lead Nigeria’s most talented marketing communications company at this time in the history of our organization.”
