Nigerian leads a Team of Foreigners To Rebrand Range Rover.
“We did it! This one has my blood, sweat and tears in it, and I am super proud,”
These were the words of the hard labouring Tyough Yohanna Beetseh who worked day and night to see the end of the newly branded Range Rover 2022.
He said, “In 2018, I was headhunted as a project & programme management consultant to lead the applications delivery and integration project – Global IT Manufacturing, for the build of this vehicle. The New Range Rover.
All we had were rough plans, diagrams of the new build halls and a small team with a big heart.
I led a team that was, on average, 10 years older and more experienced than me. I was the only person of colour (black) in my immediate team but got along very well with everybody.
In between, I ran for the membership of the House of Representatives, juggling between Abuja Airport and London Heathrow frequently. Sometimes working while on flights and on trips between Abuja and Makurdi. Sometimes in Nigeria on a Thursday and then back to London on Sunday.
In between, COVID hit. We weathered the storm. Kept the project on track. It was hard.
After all the early mornings, late nights, weekend work, long meetings, heated arguments and intense presentations. I am super proud of my team’s effort in contributing to the build of this car
Glad we are finally able to share this masterpiece with the world. Indeed, this one has my blood and sweat in it, and I will forever cherish the experience.
Someone in my team once joked “ we are building a car that we won’t be able to afford “, I responded that “there is nothing God cannot do”
Oluwa, it’s now time for you to bless your children with this elegance. After all, we don suffer for being. Amen
