Oando Plc Group Chief Executive officer, Wale Tinubu, has continually positioned himself as a major driver of innovation and positive change in Nigeria and internationally through his impeccable professional and personal ethics. This has reflected in the company’s resilience to grow as an indigenous brand measuring up to global standards despite running operations often characterised by standards lower than excellence.
When asked in an interview to describe Oando Plc, Wale Tinubu stated confidently, “being audacious is just what we do, who we are, and as we continue to accept challenges as opportunities, we will continue to thrive in an economy like ours.” This is not far from the truth as, under his leadership, the oil company has carved a niche for itself in Upstream, Midstream, and Downstream energy sectors in Africa and beyond, being a spearheader of numerous innovative projects that have shaped the oil and gas industry.
In 2019, Wale Tinubu has plans for Oando to pump 25% more oil than it currently does just as oil producer recently emerged from a $2.5 billion debt burden built up through the 2014 acquisition of oil and gas assets from U.S. giant ConocoPhillips.
As an energy pioneer, Oando Plc, under the leadership of Wale Tinubu, has continually provided innovative and environmentally sustainable solutions through its world-class and highly skilled human capital both locally and internationally.
Having to restructure the company’s business method in 2016 due to the global downturn in oil prices, the company under his watch has since strengthened its roots, tied all loose ends, and charted better courses in its quest for excellence.
