Today, I joined the Board of Amaecom Global. Amaecom Global is a category-king asset leasing company with operations in three African countries. Headquartered in Abuja, Amaecom has 28 branches in Nigeria.
We signed up few years ago to serve Amaecom. Over time, Amaecom has transformed as we worked with its Founder, Marcel Ofomata, and the best team in asset leasing, to use technology not just to run it but to transform it. The company has unlocked more values, deepened its accumulated capabilities and advanced the mission.
When the world was looking for FICO, esoteric numbers, etc to empower Nigerians, Marcel invented buy now pay later, using a proprietary methodology which has practically ensured that it does things few can understand in Nigeria: yes, it can give you a fridge, generator, laptop, etc and ask you to pay later. I am yet to see any business leader who understands credit mechanism better in Nigeria than Marcel.
To Amaecom team, I am honored to join this financial institution: fixing business frictions is my forte. First it was a plaque thanking us for our works. Today, it is a Board. Thank you.
