Tony Agenmonmen charts a new direction for NIMN

The President, National Institute of Marketing of Nigeria (NIMN), Tony Agenmonmen has restated his commitment to restructure the Institute and take marketing profession to an enviable height.

He disclosed this at the investiture ceremony of the institute held on February 17, 2017, at the Eko Hotel and Suites in Victoria Island Lagos.

Agenmonmen revealed that he and his council are impatient about charting a new direction for the institute. “For us, the future of the institute starts now. We will be bold. We will be courageous. We will take some hard decisions. These will be necessary if we are to truly live the mandate given to us by our members. These will not necessarily come without discomfort for some. However, we will always be guided by the principle of doing the greatest good for the greatest number of our members.” he said.

At the investiture, a new logo of the institute was unveiled to the visited guest; the logo symbolizes a bond that unites all members together and it is part of the repositioning effort of the institute.
Immediate Past President of the institute, Aare Ganiyu Koledoye, said the institute has a great future considering the effort of Agenmonmen and his team; he therefore called for support of all members and stakeholders for the institute to triumph.

Similarly, the Minister of Industry, Trade & Investment Dr. Okechukwu E. Enelamah, represented by Acting Managing Director, Bank of Industry (BOI), Waheed Olagunju pledged to collaborate with the institute.

Agenmonmen on his part stated that plans were on the way to implement all his campaign promises. “Part of our campaign promise was to restructure the institute to be fit for the future. I can report that working through a professional HR consulting firm, we have made great progress in this direction. By quarter 2/2017, a new structure, manned by highly professional employees, that compares with those of the very best professional institutes will be fully in place.

“We do not at this time have a befitting secretariat. The current arrangement at the CMD is a product of circumstances. However, a restructured institute that is designed to be pride to all our marketing professionals cannot be located where it currently is, post-restructuring” he explained.
He therefore urged members to sustain the peace and unity in the institute, as he pledged to run a transparent government.

“As we chart a new direction for our institute, I would like to challenge all our members to sustain the current peace and unity in the institute. We should not disappoint ourselves as well as those who wish us well. I commit once again on behalf of Council to lead with openness and transparency. We will remain very responsible. If there are any issues some may not be happy with, as is not unusual, please remember the NIMN pledge where you committed to settle your personal grievances within the institute.” he emphasized
