Biography

Ms Jackee Ombajo, sits on the Board of Directors of one of the largest experiential marketing firms, and doubles up as the organisation’s Chief Executive Officer.

She is a passionate entrepreneur with a tenacious excellence attitude and strong leadership skills that transcend not just corporate spaces but overflows into social circles. She has a vibrant nature and always wears a smile which belies the strong and steel will with which she tackles client issues and usually almost always comes with a very practical solution. Jackee is driven and down to earth: “What you see is what you get”.

Her Journey to her current role began 15yrs ago when she teamed up with the founder of Trueblaq Ltd, her
brother –the late Kevin Ombajo (Big Kev) to help him grow a 3-year-old entertainment & events company into a market –leading Experiential firm and brand. On his passing two years ago, with trepidation she jumped into the driver’s seat and started on a journey that has seen Trueblaq transform from a small outfit managed by a single person to a multi-million shilling corporate enterprise complete with a professional board of directors and fully kitted executive management team comprising of General Managers each handling the pillars that operationalise the organisation.

Trueblaq has a massive portfolio of top tier clients which include EABL, Safaricom, Coca-Cola, Barclays, KAM,
Stanbic, KCB, Resolution Insurance, among a string of others. All these precious organisations are handled by a lean staff of 46 members and contractual employees of up to 20,000 Pax who are contracted on a need basis depending on the weight of assignments. She has ambitious dreams of growing the reach of Trueblaq into the continent starting with East Africa and to the uttermost parts of Africa to become Africa’s foremost Integrated Marketing firm. Through Jackee’s firm but fair leadership; her consistent pursuit of excellence and keen eye for detail and execution –the company has more than quadrupled in size as it approaches its 18 year anniversary. And as Jackee always like to allude to the famous African saying….” If you want to go fast, go alone, however if you want to go far, go with people…. go together”
