Fabian Okocha, Growth Manager

Tell us a bit about you and your role at VC Innovations?

When I’m not city hoping with my DSLR trying to capture the perfect picture, (with varied success) you’ll find me cycling or jogging along one of my favourite places, Regents Canal. I’m responsible for identifying our clients company’s growth opportunities and directing them towards the right strategies, that solve their medium- and long-term goals. 

We will start with the assumption that you love all aspects of your job but what is the best bit?

I would have to say the creative license that I am given, I often work with clients who are trying to stand out in saturated markets, and creativity allows me to view and solve problems more openly and with innovation. 

How do you respond to the question ‘What does VC Innovation do?’ – in 15 words or less

We come up with novel ways to improve business performance in profitability, structure and strategy. 

What 3 words to VC Innov’ers repeat in their sleep?

Health, Happiness, Purpose. 

It’s Friday night (in normal times) –  do you: Grab a bottle of wine and turn on Netflix, head straight to the gym or grab that new outfit and head out to with friends?

If it’s winter you’re more likely to find me in the gym, but during the two weeks of Summer that you get in London, I’ll be at a rooftop garden with a glass of rum punch.
