Unity Bank Plc

XLR8 was appointed by Unity Bank in 2007 to oversee the entire communications management of its products portfolio. We implemented an integrated mix of communications activities that included a first ever privately organized Durbar in Nigeria. In the aftermath, the products attained considerable awareness and market uptake, while the brand visibility of Unity Bank itself was considerably shored up, helping to bolster overall market place performance. Indeed, its share price rose by close to 60 percent in the aftermath of the implementation of the various marketing initiatives.

XLR8 was responsible for managing the entire communications portfolio of IBM West Africa from January 2005 to April 2007. In that period, we significantly shored up the IBM brand name and re-established prime visibility and reckoning for the brand especially in its key business markets.

IBM upstaged its competition in the ICT industry in the area of visibility and key stakeholder reckoning, with attendant positive spin-offs on its revenues and bottomline.
