The Board of Directors of Computer Warehouse Group Plc (“CWG” or “the Company”) recently announced the changes in the Company’s executive management.

Mr Phillip Obioha, formerly the Chief Operating Officer has transited to Non-Executive Director. Prior to his switch to the new role, Mr Obioha led the former Communications division of Computer Warehouse Group (CWG) Plc to become the foremost provider of Wide Area, Metropolitan, and Local area networks to corporate organizations, which made remote banking possible in the Nigerian banking system. Today, the footprints of CWG Plc can be seen in every transaction made at bank locations and other platforms.

Mr Obioha is a fellow of the Institute of Directors. He has more than 20 years of cognitive experience in the Information Technology industry. He was trained as an Electrical Engineer, with specialization in digital electronics at West Virginia University, Morgantown, West Virginia in USA. However, his mastery of financial engineering raises the bar in the realm of business finance. He also holds an MBA from the International Graduate School of Management (IESE), Navara, Spain. He is also a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineer (IEEE, USA), Nigerian Economic Summit Group (NESG, corporate) and the Nigerian Computer Society (NCS).

He was conferred with the Titans of Tech award by Technology Africa in 2015.

According to the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, CWG Plc, Mr. James Agada, the Board will be strengthened as a result of his switch. “During his service as the Managing Director of our former Communications Division and later the Chief Operating Officer of CWG Plc, he made remarkable impact both in the Company and the Industry at large. Hence, I have no doubt that his wealth of experience will make more impact on the Company’s Board even as a Non-Executive Director” he said.

Recall that the Company recently appointed Mr James Agada as the new Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the Company. Prior to his appointment, Mr Agada was the Chief Technology Officer of the Company. He has vast experience in consulting, software development, implementation and support.
