September 05, (THEWILL) – Congratulatory messages have started pouring in for former Minister of Information and Technology, Omobola Johnson, as she assumes office as the first female Chairman of Guinness Nigeria. Although she was appointed to the position in July, official congratulatory messages from the company popped up a few days ago and many who saw it have joined in celebrating the pacesetter for recording another milestone in her career.

Johnson took over from Babatunde Savage, the former Chairman of Guinness who retired in June this year. A woman of many parts, she was the first female country manager of Accenture, the first female minister of Communication and Technology and now, the first female chairman of Guinness Nigeria. Her stint with Guinness Nigeria dates back to 2016 when she was appointed to the Board of Guinness Nigeria as an independent non- executive director.

She brings to the board over 30 years experience from the private and public sectors of the Nigerian economy. An alumnus of the Prestigious University of Manchester, University of London and Cranfield University, she started her professional career in management consulting at the London Office of Arthur Andersen/Andersen Consulting (now known as Accenture) in 1985. She retired in 2010 to pursue other interests. She was appointed a member of Nigeria’s Presidential Advisory Council in 2010, providing support to the then Acting President Goodluck Jonathan.
