Client Relationship Manager, Intellor Group
Tania Chinje is a Client Relationship Manager at Intellor Group. Her portfolio consists of multinationals such as Swiss Re and Eaton, global conglomerates such as Dupont, and much closer to home, the Executive Office of the President of the United States. Her company is an agency tasked with facilitating corporate marketing communications. In less than a year she was able to step up the ladder within her company from Event coordinator to Team Manager and finally in her current capacity, with no intention to stop there and all the while managing the dual responsibility of community organizer for a local Baltimore non-profit.
Ever since completing her second Master’s Degree in Global Communications from Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts, she has relentlessly focused on building a career and professional stature in just that field. She has never been engaged in less than two pursuits at any given time, all in the interest of closing knowledge gaps, developing networks on a global scale and building a base for much loftier goals. This has been evident throughout her career path, which began as a Junior Account Executive at Switch Branding in Johannesburg, South Africa in tandem with her role in Sponsorship and Fundraising Management for Brand Leadership Academy in the organization of the 2nd Annual Brand Africa Forum. She then moved back to her home country of Cameroon where she worked as Programs Manager at Spectrum Television, while honing her content creation and business communication skills as a grant writer and eventually Communications Coordinator for a non-profit called Global Humanitarian Photojournalists. In the latter capacity they created a documentary for Congolese rural women in their role as primary bread winners. Although she left the continent for some time, she eventually returned in an effort to effect social progress in her home country by engaging in the community directly, which consisted of initiating career centers in various public and private institutions in the Northwest regions, while teaching Corporate Communications at ESSTIC, the communications school of University of Yaounde.
Though she has since had to return to the United States, her dreams for her home country and continent have not waned. She is currently working on a non-profit of her own, for the educational development of under-privileged children in creative pursuits. She believes that activating such talents in children and creating accessible platforms will engender the desire to overcome rooted norms and produce an insightful and globally competitive group of African youth, to propel a more inclusive yet self-sustaining and independent future for our continent.
