APO Group, the leading pan-African communications and business consultancy, has announced that Google’s Sub-Saharan Africa Director, Nitin Gajria, is joining the African Women in Media Award judging panel.
The award recognises, celebrates and empowers African women in the media who support female entrepreneurship throughout the continent.
More than 100 leading figures from diverse organisations have come together to make this the largest and most influential panel of judges ever assembled for an African media award.
Global icons such as Naomi Campbell have been joined by senior executives from every major industry on the continent, from Visa to Hilton; Facebook to World Rugby; and Uber to LEGO.
Gajria leads the sub-Saharan Africa region at Google.
He has been at the company for over six years, after spending more than a decade in Brand Marketing at Procter & Gamble and Mead Johnson working all across the Asia Pacific region.
Prior to his current role, Gajria led the YouTube business in India and South-East Asia and he has also led Google in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos.
“The momentum for this award just keeps on building, and we are thrilled that Nitin has joined the jury panel,” said Nicolas Pompigne-Mognard, Founder and Chairman of APO.
“This year we have over 100 judges… and counting! But, more important than that, everyone on the panel is right at the top of their field, and they all share our passion for supporting female journalism and entrepreneurship in Africa. Together, our truly exceptional judging panel has helped us make the APO Group African Women in Media Award the biggest and most prestigious journalism prize in Africa.”
