With a firm belief in growing our talent through professional development and mentorship, and supporting our employees in realising their full potential the agency has promoted two of its client services team, Lwando Marambana and Lisa Snyman, to Account Director and Account Manager.
Talking about the promotion our MD, Andrew MacKenzie, said, “Lwando and Lisa have shown exceptional growth. Lwando has a driving ambition to assist the agency in its Johannesburg operations and has grown tremendously over the last year. We are confident that his skill set, experience in the FMCG category, and business acumen will be an asset to not only Boomtown, but also the clients we partner with, and he is certainly part of our long-term growth strategy in the region.”
“Lisa is based in our Port Elizabeth office and has gained valuable experience on a cross-section of government accounts. Her insight into this sector will play a vital role in the agency’s expansion into this area. We are all excited about the opportunity and the potential it presents for Lisa and Boomtown.”
Both Lwando and Lisa began working at Boomtown as part of the Bayeza internship programme. Their progress in the advertising industry demonstrates the success of the internship scheme in producing quality professionals who further the industry.
