About Me

With one of Madrid's many Champions League trophies...

My name is Mogbekeloluwa but I prefer to be called Koye; it is easier to pronounce and it is anyway part of my last name. I am very curious about the world, so I ask a lot of questions, read a lot, and listen to podcasts often. I also enjoy creating, so I try to write frequently and enjoy photographing landscapes. I love watching Real Madrid play!

I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering from OAU (Nigeria) and an MBA from INSEAD (France). I was valedictorian at INSEAD's 2018 Fontainebleau graduation and my speech is here. I believe in business as a force for good, and I believe business can be a powerful tool for creating value, shaping society, and enabling people to achieve their dreams.

I am currently responsible for growing a £££ million category within Amazon's retail business in the UK. Prior to this, I worked in Strategy Consulting at Accenture and in Procurement and Advertising at P&G. While studying for my MBA at INSEAD, I worked with a team for Google to develop a guide on improving the practice of marketing in large organizations.

When something happens that is worth writing long posts about, I share those posts here. Otherwise, you might find me on Twitter or Facebook writing shorter posts or commenting furiously during Real Madrid matches.

PS: I've done a few feature-length profiles over the past few years, mostly linked to my INSEAD MBA story. Here's a link to one on Bella Naija and another on Clear Admit.

Cheers,
Koye
