Why she stands out
Evelyn was part of the think tank that dared to start the first FM radio Station, Sanyu FM, when the government liberalized the industry. That was the time when one had to move around with a music player, tune out the sound to convince prospective advertising decision makers of a new frequency, not a program on radio Uganda.
At Sanyu , she started off as a Senior Marketing Executive then to Key Account Manager, and finally Head of Marketing. Her first account was Nile Breweries for which she developed compelling properties to drive the brand and it’s still a key account to this day
At Dembe FM she Set out to turn around the Station’s bottom line when it was bought by Simba Group. Worked to position the Station in the top 5 tier of local FM stations, making it attractive to Nation Media Group who acquired it.
