Adetimehin Oluwasegun Matthew
Full Stack DevOps Engineer | VAS, Digital and Enterprise Solutions

TBenson (popular called) is a brilliant goal-getter, he never believes there is box where he thinks from - meaning he is never boxed in corner for he is always seeking a new angle. During my work experience with him, his idea generation approach and execution plans were just on-point which in the long run yielded high revenue output. Temitope was a plus to the team and his absence was greatly felt, for he's got a blend of business alignment principles with ability to maximize technology's strength in product execution. In addition to his high level of professionalism, he is a cool, smart and fun-loving person to be with. He is a must-have on a team....I vouch for him.

Temitope is constantly searching for ways to improve the business. At Brandtone he worked relentlessly to ensure that we had a great service and managed our day to day relationships with aggregators (tech and commercial). In addition he also liaised directly with client accounts to understand their needs and create our statement of work. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Temitope again.

EMMANUEL ESSIEN
CONTENT MANAGER

T-Benson as he was fondly called is an excited executioner whose vigor in delivering on set goals was a product of his positive approach towards work and life. He is a people's person and was also known to be that great guy who always throws in some ice-breakers whenever the team was becoming too stiff and too mechanical. He is versatile across different fronts and working with him was truly memorable. He has my respect anytime any day cause he is a doer; no doubt he is every winning team's delight.
