About Phillip Otim

I am a passionate, creative and professional growth hacker with 10+ years of experience, 8 of which are at senior management level.
At present, I lead a team at Stanbic in business & commercial banking and corporate & investment banking to provide in the area of marketing, brand and sales functionality. Previously, I was the Marketing and Communications Manager for Equity Bank Uganda where I contributed to corporate objectives of business development and increased sales through market and concept development of projects such as Equiduuka, Eazzy Banking and *247#.

Notable Achievements
Designed the marketing, brand and product concept for agency banking at Equity Bank Uganda, supervised 20 brand ambassadors recruiting 4000 agents countrywide transacting UGX 3.5 billion a day which led to growth of the bank’s deposit base by UGX 9 billion.
Designed several marketing strategies including the Equity USSD digital selfservice platform for account opening that has grown Equity bank’s deposit base by UGX 2.3 billion and new to bank clients by 32,027.
