About this Episode

Greetings Glocal Citizens!

This week on the podcast I have the pleasure of hosting a social innovator who intersects not only my local experiences in Brooklyn and Accra, he is the husband of my guest on Episode 139, Asmeret Berhe-Lumax and on the Advisory Committee of Episodes 42/43 guest, Nana Eyeson-Akiwowo’s African Health Now. A fellow Ghanaian, Stanley Lumax is currently the Executive Brand Marketing Director at JP Morgan Chase, where he manages the Sapphire and Freedom Unlimited portfolios. Prior to this role, he partnered with Complex Media Networks to create Climate, an agency built to help brands harness the power of youth culture. He has also worked with brands such as Nike Basketball, National Basketball Association, Converse, Beats By Dre’, Brooklyn Nets, Pepsi, Budweiser and a host of other brands that have impacted popular culture. He’s taken this experience and applied it to his desire to bring the African Diaspora together. In 2019, he partnered with celebrated Senegalese chef, Pierre Thiam to open a West African concept restaraunt called Teranga, which has been celebrated as one of the top 20 places to eat in New York City.
