Creative Director at FCB Africa, Suhana Gordhan has been announced as the new Loeries Chairperson. She takes over the position from Neo Mashigo who completes his two-year tenure this year.

Nunu Ntshingila-Njeke, head of Facebook Africa, also became the first female to be inducted into the Loeries Hall of Fame during the final awards ceremony of the Loeries 2016 on Sunday at the Durban International Convention Centre.

A veteran of the South African advertising space, Ntshingila-Njeke helped turn Ogilvy & Mather South Africa into the formidable agency player it is today. In her new role as Head of Africa for Facebook, she’s charged with building the social network’s commercial presence in South Africa and the continent as a whole.

Commenting on being awarded the accolade, Ntshingila-Njeke said: “It is an incredible honour and career highlight to receive this award from the creative fraternity. I hope this award continues to inspire young women to find their voice and to ensure opportunities for them to thrive in the creative industry”.

“I am honoured to take on this role as Chairperson and look forward to serving the Loeries. The Loerieshas always been about shining a light on creative excellence, and I hope to play a part in continuing to uphold the iconic creativity that comes out of this continent. As a woman, I consider it a privilege to be able to use my own experiences and that of my esteemed peers to invest in, and to inspire other young women coming up in the industry to unleash their own power of creativity and to aim for those Golds and Grand Prix awards,” says Gordhan.
