Marek Zmyslowski steps down as Jovago Nigeria MD

by | Oct 30, 2015

Marek Zmyslowski, former Managing Director of Jovago is stepping down from the role to further his ambition as a local investor in Nigeria. Marek has been the company’s country Managing Director for more than 2 and half years.

However, Marek is not leaving Nigeria as many would have thought; he has some local startups (SimplePay, Talking Bookz and in which he has invested over the past 5 months. As such, the purpose of him stepping down is to allow him do more of local startup investment and also serve on many boards as director.

“I will definitely be staying back in Nigeria. Last 2 years of Jovago, I gave 100% focus on Jovago but when it comes to Nigeria there are some other opportunities you will like to be part of. But it’s not good to be involved in many things as you loose focus easily. I’m at the stage where I wanted to satisfy the entrepreneur in me and get involved in companies not necessarily as a CEO but as adviser or investor and I would like to use my experience to build up a local company in Nigeria ,” -said Marek in a chat after the hand over.

Kushal Dutta, former head of Revenue Management (pictured left above), will be taking over from Marek as Managing Director.
