Frederick Mordi joins Cadbury as communications manager

A serial writer and journalist, Frederick Mordi has left Dangote Group to pitch tent with confectionery giant, Cadbury Nigeria Plc.

Mordi joined Cadbury late last year and he has been functioning as the communications specialist for the organisation.

Cadbury has been without a substantive spokesperson since Omije Akomen left for Nigerian Bottling Company years ago.

Bala Yusufe, a sales and marketing professional has discharged communication’s function since then.

A business journalist of repute, Mordi has over 15 years experience spanning economic and developmental journalism, public relations and corporate communications.

He once wrote for London-based African Business magazine, a pan-African monthly publication.

He had worked with Financial Standard newspapers where he rose from a reporter to news editor.

Mordi holds MSc Degree in Media and Communication from the Pan-Atlantic University, Lagos, and until recently he was the Prosci-certified Change Manager and Group Head, Internal Communications for the Dangote Group in Lagos.
