Primrose Kobusingye ACIM,MBA
The English adage,` the first impression makes a lasting impression` is not always correct. With Primrose, you never know what to expect. The research I had made showed an ambitious and aggressive person. I come to our meeting venue with minutes to spare and waited. In my mind, I had an image of a middle-aged woman, 5”5 tall or thereabout.
Primrose arrived at the exact time. Clad in a simple black dress with short colored hair, her energy could not be ignored as she walked through the doors with a firm gait – straight towards me. She looked to be in her late 20s and nothing close to the 5”5
“Hi, I hope I didn’t keep you waiting”, she said. I was in incredulity at the person who was taking a seat right next to me. Cheeky and confident in the same measure. With this type of persona, everything about her high-flying career started to fall in line.
She gradually grew through the ranks in the corporate ladder that saw her assume the position of Acting Head of Marketing Orient Bank at only the age of 27. She has gone on to shake ceilings in the marketing sphere at Ecobank and FINCA.
