Imudia ends term at Konga as Ekeh takes over as CEO
Co-Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at Konga, Nigeria’s composite e-commerce platform, Nick Imudia, is standing down from his leadership role at the company, after a successful term as agreed with the Board of Konga Group while Prince Ekeh, his Co–CEO, who just completed his MBA from University of Oxford, England, is expected to take charge.
Imudia and Ekeh, are responsible for what industry watchers have described as a tech miracle. They turned Konga around from an almost dead company into profitability within four years and launched other strategic verticals like Konga Logistics – a digital logistics company, Konga offline retail chain, KongaPay- a CBN-licensed fintech company, Konga Travel, Konga Health and Konga Food, among others.
Imudia joined the firm in 2018 with the acquisition of the e-commerce giant from previous majority owners, South African-headquartered Naspers and Swedish-based AB Kinnevik.
Before joining Konga as a strategic partner and Co-CEO, he was the Regional Director of TCL/Alcatel for two years. Imudia was also the Managing Director of Nokia West where he served in various capacities for over 17 years. A man with a global presence, he has lived in USA, Finland and Singapore where he was celebrated for his expertise in capability development, operational excellence, systems analysis and process management, among others
Ekeh is now expected to lead Konga with a new restructured Executive Management team of tested first-class professionals into the next phase of its expansion. Konga is expected to make in-roads into other African markets after achieving a measure of industry relevance, acceptance and market leadership in Nigeria.
An Economics graduate and fintech guru, Prince Ekeh has acquired huge experience belying his age.
His business management skills and keen understanding of retail have equally contributed to driving Konga to the zenith of the e-Commerce sector in Nigeria.
