Industrial And General Insurance Plc (IGI) has constituted a new management team that will oversee the affairs of the company.
This, according to the company, is in continuation of its restructuring programme aimed at repositioning for optimum performance.
The company’s Corporate Communications manager, Steve Ilo, who made this known said the new team would occupy the positions in acting capacities, with immediate effect pending when substantive officers are appointed in line with the regulations of the National Insurance Commission (NAICOM).

The Executive Director, Finance and Accounts, Mr. YinkaObalade, also retired, while his Information Technology, Human Resource and Administration counterpart, Mrs. FolusoGbadamosi, tendered her resignation.

“The erstwhile management, having laid the requisite foundation and structures for the success of the repositioning agenda, offered to step aside to pave the way for fresh ideas that will further galvanise the advancement of the new strategic direction of the company.
“The board thanked the outgoing management for its immense contribution to the growth of the company and for laying the proper structures and processes for the ongoing restructuring”, Ilo added.
