Lamudi, Nigeria's largest online property portal, has announced Akua Nyame-Mensah as the company's new managing director. Akua, who currently serves as the MD of Lamudi Ghana will oversee operations of both companies.
Speaking on her transition to Nigeria, Akua described the process as "exciting". She is looking forward to working with the two teams across both continents, which she believes will lead to favourable opportunities for the company as a whole.
Obi Ejimofo, who has held the position of MD of Lamudi Nigeria since late 2013, is regarded as the driving force of the company's 105-percent increase in land and property listed for sale or rent. He has made countless contributions to the company's success, including the over 3,000 real estate agents the company caters to across Nigeria.
On the choice of a new MD for Lamudi Nigeria, Mr Ejimofo stated, "Akua was the obvious and best choice to take this role. Her achievements at Lamudi Ghana are remarkable and because she's been there from day one, I believe she is well equipped to take this company to the next level".
Before joining Lamudi, Ms Nyame-Mensah worked as an events consultant and for several development contractors in Accra, Ghana. Akua holds a master's degree from the University of Pennsylvania and a bachelor's degree from Bryn Mawr College.
Under Akua's tenure at Lamudi Ghana, the company has grown to secure over 8,000 property listings on its site. Lamudi Ghana focuses on providing exceptional customer service and has developed relationships with over 400 individuals, developers and agents who are active users of its online portal. The company is currently the largest real estate classifieds in Ghana and produces the country's only quarterly property and lifestyle magazine.
