We're expanding our West Africa presence into Nigeria

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Maurice Okolo as Business Development Director, operating from Lagos, Nigeria.

Spearheading our activity in West Africa, Maurice's appointment follows a raft of senior recruitments that has reinforced our commercial drive in Africa and the Middle East.

Based in Lagos, Nigeria, Maurice will be responsible for running our planned representative office for the region, bringing in new business across our service offering. He brings over 15 years of financial, investment advisory and asset management expertise to Ocorian, including a number of years at Bank of America Merrill Lynch.

Speaking on his appointment, Maurice said:

As a Nigerian myself, I am thrilled to help Ocorian build up its West African base in Lagos and help leverage on the excellent contacts we have there to deepen our business relationships in both the country and the region. There is a lot that can be done in terms of strengthening the connection between financial and governance capital for our fast growing enterprises and that is where Ocorian, as an award-winning provider of corporate and fiduciary services, can make a difference.”

Richard Arlove, Ocorian Regional CEO for Africa, Middle East and Asia commented:

“The recruitment of Maurice and the opening of our Lagos office are important milestones in our continued expansion on the continent. We now have representative offices in Lagos, Nairobi, Côte d’Ivoire and South Africa. Our expanding footprint and the renewed dynamism of our impending merger with Estera has put us in a favourable position to continue delivering value to our African clientele. I am delighted that Maurice is joining us at such an exciting time for us all as the continent witnesses sustained growth.”
