Our success is down to the quality of the service we provide for our multinational clients; and that quality of service is down to the talented people that work here.
But we’re always striving to improve our offering. How can we do this? By recruiting the very best … and this is what we’ve done in hiring Tunji Akintokun MBE.
Tunji has joined us as Senior Vice President of Sales, based out of our London Bridge HQ. His vast experience in the sector will help us develop our sales protocols and strategies, and grow our business further with new and existing clients and in new geographies.
Tunji’s CV is impressive, and Buckingham Palace agrees: Tunji was awarded an MBE in the new years’ honours list.
Prior to joining NSC, Tunji spent 18 successful years at Cisco. He started as an account manager (and NSC was one of those accounts, when we were in our infancy), and moved up the ranks – holding many global leadership positions – to his final role as Director of Commercial and Partner Organisations for Africa.
Apart from his day job, Tunji has an incredibly busy life as a director and founder of various charities and initiatives, driven by his passion to increase diversity in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) jobs.
Inspired by a visit from IBM to his school when he was 11, which led to his own career in tech, he founded Your Future, Your Ambition with Rashada Harry in 2012, with a mission to motivate young people from diverse backgrounds to go into STEM careers.
As well as this, Tunji sits on the Business Leader Council of Teach First, the country’s biggest educational charity; he is a Board Trustee at Ilesha Charitable Trust; he is a non-exec director at Regital, a digital agency; a Vibrant Economy Commissioner for Grant Thornton LLP; and he sits on the women’s council of techUK.
His hobbies (how does he have time for hobbies!?) include sport, supporting his local football team, Arsenal, and travelling with his family. His passion for sport and travel has taken him to many Olympics Games, and he was delighted to be nominated by Cisco to be a torch bearer for the 2016 Rio Olympics.
