It is with a deep sorrow that we inform you that the President of the Advertising Association of Ghana (AAG), Mr. Torgbor Mensah, passed away suddenly on Saturday, October 23, 2021. The late Torgbor Mensah, affectionately called Mr. Tee by many who knew him, was the quintessential “self-made man”, rising by a dint of hard work from a Graphic Designer to become by all standards the Doyen of the Advertising Industry in Ghana and indeed Africa.
Torgbor Mensah, an embodiment of commerce, creativity and communication, was first elected as the President of the Advertising Association of Ghana in 2018 and was subsequently re-elected in 2020 to serve a second term, a position he held until his sudden demise. He was also the President of the Ghana Chapter of the International Advertising Association (IAA) and in October 2020, he was appointed its Vice President, Corporate Member Development, Africa. In April 2021, he was selected as a Juror for the 2021 Cannes Lions Awards in the Outdoor Category in France.
A Book of Condolence has been opened at the AAG Secretariat, Obenesu Street, Asylum Down, Accra (GPS Address GA-027-7528), from 10am to 2pm each day. Arrangements for his funeral will be announced in due course.
