Olaniyan steps down as MD of Omnicom Solutions

One of Nigeria’s leading telecom executives, Lanre Olaniyan, has stepped down from his position as the Managing Director of Omnicom Solutions Limited after 14 years.

In a statement, Olaniyan explained that contrary to expectation, he did not quit the company but stepped aside to focus on other interests. 

“I’m still part of the Omnicom team, and I only stepped aside as the MD. Knowing that I have given my best to Omnicom, I believe the stage is set for someone new to run the company and take it to greater heights while I sit on the board and give advisory support,” he said.

He further revealed that his decision to step aside had been reached for a while due to several reasons but was only made official in March 2022.

Olaniyan led Omnicom Solutions from its startup years into a multibillion-naira company with several projects in Nigeria and across the West African subregion, as revealed during its 10th anniversary in 2018. 

On his next move, he said: “I am involved in many projects and other ventures, and some of those ventures need attention. They need nurturing, just as I did for Omnicom. So, those are what I will be dedicating my time to, moving on.”
