Management Team

APCON's day to day operations are performed by a bureaucracy of public servants appointed by the Council. The head of bureaucracy and chief executive officer is the Registrar.

The operations of APCON are organized into four directorates, namely:

♦ Registration, Careers Development Matters and Corporate Licensing
♦ Regulation, Monitoring and Enforcement
♦ Planning, Research and Strategy
♦ Human Resource Management

Our Management team is made up of;

    - Dr Olalekan Fadolapo PhD, FCA, frpa - Director General

He also holds a PhD in Marketing with specialization in Marketing Communications from the Babcock University, Illisan Remo, Ogun State.

    Not just content with his acumen for academic qualifications, “Lekan” as he is fondly called by the advertising community and acquaintances, having a penchant for intellectual excellence, went ahead to arm himself with other professional qualifications which include: Registered Advertising Practitioner, Chartered Accountant and a Fellow of ICAN.

    Being an astute professional, committed to effectively and efficiently delivering assigned responsibilities, as well as possessing a strong ability to inspire individuals to pursue collective objectives, his appointment as the Registrar/Chief Executive of APCON by President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, was greeted with excitement and optimism in the Industry considering his track records of achievements and antecedents.

    Prior to his current position as the fourth (4th) substantive Registrar of the Apex Regulatory Body, Fadolapo’s outstanding leadership skills and exposure in the Industry projected him into various bodies and organisations, where he served in different capacities such as being the Executive Director/CEO of Association of Advertising Agencies of Nigeria (AAAN), and member of the immediate past Governing Council of APCON. He also held the following roles within the Council and other Industry fora: member of the Executive Committee of Heads of Advertising Sectoral Groups (HASG), Chairman of APCON Corporate Licensing Administrative Enforcement Committee (CLAEC), General Secretary, International Advertising Association (IAA) Nigeria Chapter, Chief Examiner for APCON Professional Examination, Lagos Centre as well as an ICAN Examiner, to mention but a few.
