Even as Nigeria grapples with the deterioration of nationhood, some certain individuals have been associated with blazing trails, charting paths, crashing ceiling and making the unimaginable possible. One of such persons is Engr. Usman Ibrahim, a Columbia University-trained Finance & International Business Expert and the new Board Chairman of Sparkwest Steel Industries Limited, Africa’s leading tower manufacturing and steel galvanizing giant, operating in Nigeria.
This icon would do any nation proud as a renowned industrialist and seasoned private sector expert with experience spanning over 35 years. His track and enviable records from his days of little beginning as Senior Manager at United Bank for Africa in 1985 and as Assistant General Manager at Nigerian Merchant Bank from April 1990 is a testament to the fact that he’s gifted with magic wand.
Engr. Usman’s giant strides as the Executive Director of POWERSEAL Nigeria Limited (a company manufacturing high quality decorative building paints) from September 1999, grew the company to the height of buying over one of the biggest paint manufacturing companies in Nigeria which will make it the leader in the manufacturing and sales of marine and protective coatings for Oil & Gas industry to serve the whole of West Africa sub-region.
His intervention, service and steady rising in the field of manufacturing led to his new appointment in Africa’s telcom tower manufacturing giant, Sparkwest Steel Industries Limited as the new Board Chairman where he has been making insightful turnaround, changing narratives and establishing business collaborations with multinational ventures. As a matter of fact, his recent visit to the Consul General of UAE in Lagos, H.E Abdulla Almandoos is not unconnected with his determination to exploit UAE market.
Engr. Usman attended Ahmadu Bello University and Columbia University Graduate School of Business (New York), where he majored on Finance and International Business. He’s simply a moving force that has practically demonstrated that if you really can think, you can do it.
