The Association of Digital Marketing Professionals in Nigeria ADMARP, has announced the appointment of Stanislaus Martins as its new president. Stanislaus Martins takes over from the pioneer president Oti Ukubeyinje, who remains a member of the Board of Trustees..
“This appointment,” says Board of Trustees Chair, Oluwatobi Adekunle, “will advance our 2-year roadmap to establish a sustainable member-led structure that will professionalize the practice of digital marketing in Nigeria while simultaneously engaging strategic stakeholders to contribute to policy formulation and regulatory activities in the digital marketing space.”
Over the last 12 months, ADMARP has recorded tremendous progress, first with the announcement of the pioneer executive team led by Oti Ukubeyinje. It also amplified its corporate membership plan which has attracted global multinational brands as well as SMEs active in the digital marketing space.
“I am humbled by this new responsibility because of the very large shoes Oti has left to be filled. ADMARP’s existence fills that vacuum for expert advisory and advocacy to regulators who may create policies that would hamper the growth of our profession. Building on the existing relationships with other professional bodies and the work the Association has started in professionalizing practice, our focus over the next 12 months will be to lead and support critical conversations that will shape the practice of Digital Marketing in Nigeria. We will continue to engage corporate organizations to onboard them as members and deliver various learning and knowledge-sharing initiatives for both new and prospective members.”
