12 years ago, I embarked on a journey with Google – a journey that became a mission to help shape Africa’s digital landscape. It has been my privilege to be a part of this remarkable endeavour, which has transformed lives across our continent, made technology more accessible, and opened up limitless possibilities.
After an incredible 12-year journey, I have decided to embark on a new adventure and embrace a broader role within our region’s tech ecosystem. I’m filled with gratitude and excitement to have been part of the growth story of Google in Nigeria and across Africa!
When I reflect on all that we accomplished, I feel an overwhelming sense of gratitude for the opportunity to have led the West Africa business and to have been part of the Africa leadership team in this critical period. Together we have laid the foundation for future generations, empowering individuals, businesses, and communities to thrive in the digital age.Juliet Ehimuan, Ex-West Africa Director, Google
