About the Author

A renowned Financial Security Expert, a Doctoral product, SBS Swiss Business School, Zurich, Switzerland of Business Administration, Master of Applied Business Research, Master of Business Administration, and an Executive MBA candidate of Cybersecurity at Ottawa University in the United States of America. I have acquired two (2) decades of specialization in financial planning and advisory, risk management and cybersecurity. Over the period, I have had experiences in financial greenfield projects, working with various institutions and stakeholders in more than a dozen countries across Africa and Latin America, to improve access and quality of financial products and services for low-income and underserved individuals. I have held Senior leadership positions in Investment Companies, Microfinance Banks, Savings and Loans companies, and Social Enterprises, where I have led teams, projects, and initiatives to expand market reach through greenfield projects, developed new products, deployed alternative delivery channels, developed public-private partnerships for national inclusive programs, and conducted consultancy projects for UNCDF related to donor funding projects. I have also provided technical and operational support and advice to regional and global networks and partners. At the helm of FINCA – USA (Nigeria subsidiary) as CEO, and as an influential figure within ACCION International, USA, I demonstrated prowess in international development initiatives. My endeavors in these institutions were characterized by the cultivation of substantial social capital, extending both quantitatively and qualitatively. I am passionate about availing my two decades of experience in corporate governance to industry and academia to enhance longitudinal exposure to developmental trends beneficial to multinational public and private sectors, to make our world a better place.
