The Financial Guru Empowering The Next Generation Of Game Changers “The doers are the major thinkers. The people that create the things that change this industry are both the thinker and the doer in one person” – Steve Jobs.
What makes a person different? What truly makes a man stand out in a crowd? Money? Talent? Power? Fame? Success? or is it, perhaps, INFLUENCE?? Today we stand in ovation of a true inspiration, a leading executive who stands tall amongst inspirational figures in the Nigerian banking sector, Olatomi Somefun, CEO Unity Bank Plc. Nigeria.
An accomplished Financial Services expert with over three decades hands-on experience spanning Commercial and Investment Banking, Financial and Business Consulting, and Audit and Accounting Services. She also sits on the Boards of a number of Financial and Education Institutions, and has served on the Advisory boards of several Foundations, including UBA Foundation.
Olatomi Somefun is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria and a proud graduate from the prestigious Obafemi Awolowo University (formerly University of Ife) where she bagged a Bachelor of Education in English Language in 1981.
A determined go getter, she launched her professional career in KPMG as a Chartered Accountant and has evidently since established herself as a major formidable force to reckon with. The top financier has served in major capacities in the banking world: in August 2015, she was appointed Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Unity Bank Plc, a retail bank in Nigeria. Prior to her appointment as Managing Director, she served as the Executive Director overseeing the Lagos and South-West Business Directorate, as well as the Financial Institution Division and Treasury Department of the Bank. Tomi was the Managing Director of UBA Capital & Trust Ltd from 2004 to 2005 and the founding Managing Director/CEO UBA Pension Custodian Ltd in 2005.
An enviable career, well-versed in the capital market yet this ambitious boss lady dares to aspire for more, continually broadening her horizons and impacting her world!
