The beautiful, intelligent and pacesetting Amy Jadesimi is truly one of Africa’s leading ladies. She is the Managing Director of LADOL, an oil and gas fabrication and multi-logistics services base in Nigeria. Amy graduated as a qualified medical doctor from Oxford University Medical School. She later joined Goldman Sachs International’s investment banking division in London, before attending Stanford Business School, where she earned an MBA.
On her return to Nigeria, Amy set up a financial consulting firm on her return to Nigeria before joining the management team of LILE, an oil services company, and then LADOL as the managing director. In an industry dominated by the men, Amy has excelled greatly.
