Ola Akinkugbe

Senior Consultant

Having worked all around the world with a focus in Europe and as well as with a few Central UK Government clients on Large Scale Projects, I have an in-depth understanding of both the critical technical aspects of a variety of organisation operating in a variety of technical verticals.

Over the course of several years I have been exposed to the various processes of recruiting and selling to individual clients and C- Level Decision Makers in Cyber Security & Information Technology, whilst dealing with important client requirements with the utmost responsibility and accountability.

I joined TFPL in August 2018, to help develop the Technology Division and I am very grateful to work for a great organisation like TFPL. I find myself surrounded by family who advise and guild me on my journey and I unquestionably plan to be a success while helping this great organisation reach new heights globally.
