Gorilla Corporation, a provider of vendor partner marketing services and technologies, said Oduol’s appointment will strengthen the company’s multi-country plan at a time when business is increasingly becoming virtual.

“This expansion is in line with our strategy of expanding into the emerging markets that are expected to yield significant cost and revenue synergies. In Oduol, we have the right leader with the political capital, cultural experience and channel sales expertise in the region to drive our expansion and closely support our clients.”
