Tony Elumelu’s inspiring journey to becoming a bank CEO at age 34

Tony Elumelu, the Chairman of United Bank for Africa has shared his story of how he became a bank CEO at 34 – one of the youngest in the industry.

Mr. Elumelu credits his successes to hard work and luck, inspiring him to create opportunities for young people.

Over time, he established himself with a 7% stake in UBA and a 2.1% stake at Transnational Corporation of Nigeria as well as his philanthropic initiative, Tony Elumelu Foundation which empowers African entrepreneurs across 54 countries.

He further explained that ambition, youthfulness and reform-minded policies enabled him to succeed despite intense competition within the banking industry at the time.

In addition, this past month saw Tony’s foundation appoint its new CEO Somachi Chris-Asoluka in her early 30s who is no doubt proof of ambitious youth succeeding through their technical skills and leadership qualities.

Encouraging successful leaders to champion young dreams and offer role modelling advice to younger generations so that they may copy from our mistakes and even achieve brighter heights than us.

Finally leaving a legacy ensures progress amongst new generations as well as lasting success for any leader.
