Jumia Nigeria wins best Online Retail Brand of the Year award

Jumia Nigeria has won the best Online Retail Brand of the Year award at the Brand Journalists Association of Nigeria (BJAN) Awards.

According to BJAN chairman Goddy Ofose, the online shopping company is growing and managing to "keep a good perceived brand that customers both offline and online can recognise with. Even though Jumia still has a long way to go this is just the beginning to building the brand we want in Nigeria."

Jeremy Hodara, co-ceo of Africa Internet Holding (AIH) – JUMIA’s holding company said: “We are glad our hard work and growth over the years has paid off following our World Retail award as Best New Retail and now we are also recognized locally by the Brands Journalist Association of Nigeria. We only launched Jumia in Nigeria one and a half years ago and we are eager to share our success story.”

Sacha Poignonnec, the other AIH co-CEO, stated the company had a very successful 2013, "from launching the leading e-commerce app in Africa to building our e-commerce campus in West Africa. We have to say a big thank you to everyone who has contributed to this.

Especially to Tunde Kehinde and Raphael Afaedor for their achievements with Jumia Nigeria. They've made a great impact on our development and we wish them all the best."

BrandArena reported recently that Jumia Nigeria had appointed Nicolas Martin and Jérémy Doutté announced as new CEOs, replacing Kehinde and Afaedor who have both decided to leave their positions as managing director (MD) of the company to start their own business.
