Lesegokelame Modise Becomes Managing Partner of the JWT Johannesburg Team
Lesegokelame Modise has joined JWT Johannesburg’s Managing Partner. As managing partner, he will work closely Executive Creative Director, Nick Liatos, to continue to grow the clients’ brands and businesses.
Lesegokelame, or Lame as he likes to be called, has more than 15 year’s of industry experience already under his belt with five of them spent at JWT. Initially he led the Telkom account and continued on to become Business Unit Director for Global Team Blue.
Lame has led teams in sectors such as Financial Services, FMCG, Alcohol, Telco, Tourism, Automotive and B2B, and worked with brands such as ABSA, Ford, SAT, SABMiller, Coca-Cola, Dulux, Nandos, Unisa, GCIS, and Standard Bank.
“I believe South Africa, and Gautent in particular, are hotbeds of innovation, development and growth” added Lame. “Cultures around the world are becoming increasingly urbanized, so we are in the most exciting of places to be, right here right now. And we need to leverage that, for our talent and for our clients – mentoring now only the leaders of the future, but finding the right brand solutions for a better and brighter tomorrow.”
