I have known Gbenro for more than 25 years and he and I have worked in the same group of companies for approaching half that time. Gbenro is a talented publisher and a good manager. Under his stewardship the profile of Evans Brothers Publishers has been raised significantly. The company's publishing has improved immeasurably and the company's turnover has increased as the stature of its list has grown.

Brian Jones | Independent Learning and Teaching Materials Consultant

Gbenro is a visionary who has taken his organization to new and unbelievable heights through his insight, imagination and boldness.
He constantly thinks outside the box and is always exploring ways of applying new and emerging technologies in the publishing field. I see the opportunities I have had to consult on some of his tech ideas as a big privilege.

Dolapo Taiwo | Managing Partner @ Unotech Media Ltd.

Gbenro has never been a loser always a winner. Articulate ,eye for detail and mover and shaker in the publishing industry. He will give the Nigerian publishing a new direction. and change the landscape of the rather dated Nigerian book market. he will look beyonf Nigeria . Joop Berkhout.
