Printivo appoints Temitope Ekundayo as new CEO

Printivo has appointed Temitope Ekundayo, its former head of growth, as new CEO.

Ekundayo announced his new role in a casual tweet – ”new bio” – a subtle move that directed his followers to check his Twitter bio, which now reads ‘CEO-ing @printivo’.

In August, Oluyomi Ojo’s watch as CEO of Printivo came to an end; Ojo held the CEO role since 2014 when he co-founded Printivo with Ayodeji Adeogun and Ibukun Oloyede.

Ekundayo’s responsibility as CEO is to significantly grow the business and help Printivo achieve more milestones in the coming years. Ekundayo has been part of – and has also led – the company’s growth and innovation effort since its inception.

Ekundayo is also the brains behind Printivo’s Promostack, an e-commerce platform for ordering promotional items, corporate gifts and merchandise, and continues to direct its operations. Promostack is still in beta mode in Nigeria and South Africa, but Ekundayp has plans to pull the product out of beta soon.

“My plan to move the company forward is multilayered but it’s mostly hinged around cutting-edge creatives and strategic partnership. As a tech company, we will continue to delight our customers by using technology to foster access to premium print and great services across the board.” Ekundayo told TechCabal in an exclusive interview.

In Nigeria’s booking tech ecosystem, Ekundayo wears many hats: he’s also a co-founder and head of growth at GetEquity, a startup using blockchain technology to democratise fundraising for Africa startups.

When asked how he plans to manage both his roles at Printivo and GetEquity, Ekundayo said, “I always devote 100% to everything I do. They are two different tangential businesses and with a solid team. I’ve been able to run both effectively and I doubt it will get to a point where I can’t effectively run both of them.”

Printivo has over 25,000 small businesses across Nigeria using its solution to design and order branded marketing materials. Printivo also serves enterprise clients like Google, Flutterwave, Deloitte, Microsoft, British Council and 9mobile.
