The quest to grow its share of the travel industry and take advantage of new business opportunities has inspired Wakanow to reorganise its operations.

According to a statement, the firm now operates as a group, with Mr Adebayo Adedeji appointed as the Group Chief Executive Officer and Mrs Adenike Macaulay chosen as the Chief Executive Officer of Wakanow Nigeria, effective January 2023.

Under the new structure, Mr Adedeji will be at the forefront of expanding the business in Africa (beginning with West Africa) and then exporting the Wakanow excellence into other regions of the world, while Mrs Macaulay will head operations of the organisation in Nigeria and works to deepen the company’s roots and spread its tentacles across the regions of the country.

“We are expanding into new verticals and countries in Africa & beyond to take advantage of new business opportunities in the emerging competitive landscape leveraging our deep understanding of the African customer and expertise in the travel tech industry, and I will be leading this venture as Group CEO.

“The synergy I have built with Adenike over the last 18 months makes me super confident to take on this new challenge knowing that our core business will continually grow geometrically in her hands,” Mr Adedeji commented.

On her part, Mrs Macaulay expressed her delight in receiving “the leadership torch of Wakanow Nigeria from Bayo and also excited to take on the new responsibility saddled upon me by the board and management of Wakanow and look forward to leading and building with an immensely talented team.”

Wakanow is a coy defining the future in the travel industry, opening new doors, creating ease of travel, unlocking new destinations, and providing fintech services that enhance travel.

The revolution is creating opportunities that are driving the future of how customers shop for travel and how they interface with travel agencies and the entire value chain of the travel industry.

The company has also strategically positioned its subsidiaries to open new frontiers, constantly innovating for a more satisfactory customer travel experience, delivering technologically powered solutions for things as basic as buying flight tickets to booking hotels and rides.
