Gbolahan joined Career Insights training program earlier this year (2013) and wanted to take his time to gain enough project management experience within the mobile space in order to secure a project manager role. Most companies will not employ you unless you have a minimum of two years experience and as a result Gbolahan went from starting as a project planner at Digital Bananas Technology to a project manager and finally a program manager managing a portfolio of projects and a team of over 97 strong project management and business analyst professionals.
He was involved in managing the DBT’s offshore development and design team in Ukraine and Portugal and an extremely effective team leader involved in setting up a number of processes that improved overall throughput.
I was over joyed when I received his whatsapp message earlier this week informing me of his new role. Gbolahan secured a Senior Project Manager with WeLoveDigital media agency managing projects for clients such as Sony, Yamaha and Kingfisher.
