He developed global marketing strategies for the Company and set up a formidable sales team that sold over 5 billion litres of white products in 5 years (Calabar depot only).


By establishing throughput arrangements with major depots in Lagos and Port Harcourt, he increased Rainoil’s market share, particularly in Automobile Gas Oil (AGO) sales and distribution. The Company’s top line improved by 17 per cent as a result of this. He supervised and coordinated the Company’s petroleum products terminal activities at Calabar Tank Farm as a Depot Manager, putting in place business goals, targets, and plans that improved the depot’s overall performance from “slightly” to “outstanding- depot of choice”.
