Toke Alex Ibru is the Executive Director of The Guardian, a role he has played for 10 years. In this time he has overseen its transformation from a traditional newspaper to an all-encompassing integrated multimedia group.
With the last 15 years doing business in Nigeria with unrivaled contacts across all sectors, Toke sits on the boards of the Guardian, Ikeja Hotels, Capital Hotels, Charles Hampton, Nigerian-Belgian Chamber of Commerce, and Warif. Toke is a History Graduate from Exeter University, UK.
He was announced as the Man of the Year at the EbonyLife TV Sisterhood Awards for 2017. He was recognized for his work with Guadian Woman, an eight-page weekly insert in The Guardian on Saturdays. This not only gives voice to Nigerian women but also celebrates their achievements and sheds light on issues specific to them.
Guardian Woman has now become a go-to media platform for many women-focused organizations and individuals, in and outside Nigeria.
Congratulations on your achievements!!
