Professional Experience and Achievements

The company started with a capital of N10,000 (Ten Thousand Naira only) in 1998 and it has grown since then to an asset base of about Four Billion Naira. When I joined the company, almost all the factory machines were faulty and outdated; within 2 years all the factory machinery were upgraded and doubled. Also recorded the substantial increase in the entire factory assets.

Our staff strength was expanded to over 200 employees with about 30 expatriates from various countries in Europe and Asia. Teams of employees were created from different cultures and functions within the company. Revenue was increased through intelligent business planning, sales and marketing, process improvements while simultaneously working on employee relations, vendors and supplier relationship and overcoming other business challenges.
