Aziza Albou Traoré, CEO
In 2015, Aziza Albou Traoré founded AZ Media to assist corporations and governments with their international communications.
Aziza moved from France to the United States eight years ago and started as an account manager at The Network Journal, a business magazine. She held various positions, from marketing to writing and programming, for major international media (Jeune Afrique, Forbes, Africa 24). In 2011, she became the first representative for Groupe Jeune Afrique in North America and opened their office in New York City.
She recognized the need for a more positive and accurate representation of emerging markets abroad, and the importance for these markets to handle media exposure more professionally. Aziza thus started providing communication advisory services between Africa and the United States. With AZ Media, she aims to extend her services to international level.
