Following Reorg, SVP Saheed Shodipo and 8 Others Leaves African Social Networking Giant, LAGbook
African Social Networking Giant, Ladies And Gentlemen book (LAGbook) just announced that its Senior Vice President, Saheed Shodipo and 8 others are leaving the company.
The news came after a reorganization of the company that was revealed some days ago. The move reflects LAGbook's growing emphasis on profitability and job effectiveness, with all Vice Presidents reporting directly to Josh Osemwegie, the Company's President. And that news, of course, came after an 8 weeks advertising deal with Research In Motion (Blackberry)
“Saheed Shodipo and eight others leave us effective immediately,”
"The Reorg comes from a will to merge job responsibilities and create a more challenging work environment for the remaining team members, in order to yield productivity and increase profits for our young social company in the nearest future.", said Josh Osemwegie, President at LAGbook.
Other team members leaving the young social company include, Kayode Ojo (VP, Business Operations), Aseize Okaztle (VP, Information)
"The job responsibilities of our departing team members will be merged with the job responsibilities of some of our staying team members.", said John Nwaogu Jr., Vice President, Human Resources at LAGbook. "Nosa Ilegbenehi (VP, Finance) takes over responsibility of our Business activities. Onyelo Kinglsey (VP, Technology) will be handling all responsibilities of our outgoing VPs of Engineering, Product and Information. Similarly, Jake Adebayo (VP, Publicity) takes charge of our Marketing and Public Relations, and Amara Nwaogu (VP, Customer Support) takes over the responsibility of our various social network presence."
"Uche Okiya leaves us as a result of a move taken earlier last week to shut down our administrative presence in Ghana and merge it with the responsibility of Presidency."
