Mr. Kenneth Dan-Anyiam is a 1980 Economics graduate of the University of Lagos, completed the mandatory National Youth Service Corps in Nigeria and is an alumnus of the Lagos Business School (LBS).
Following a keen aspiration to be an independent entrepreneur, yet mindful of the need to get structured training, he interned with Cross Ocean, a UK business consulting group for a year. After this stint, he immediately launched himself into a business career by setting up a market entry consulting firm, Ellis and Watts, focused on bringing multinational giants to berth in Africa. This early start has now culminated in over thirty-five (35) years experience in business, particularly in the Oil and Gas and the Defense industries.
Kenneth has considerable business knowledge of the oil and gas industry. He also has significant international exposure and has interacted extensively with key players in the industry globally and locally. His area of specialization however, is in the conceptualization and implementation of projects at both the local and international levels. These projects have been executed in the form of joint ventures and other operational structures as dictated by the nature of the business and environment.
He sits on the board of several organizations by virtue of his wide knowledge base, strategic thinking, value adding mindset, clear focus on achieving stakeholder objectives and commitment to business and personal integrity.
In his personal time, Kenneth has an enthusiastic interest in organic agriculture through his involvement with Solar Wheels Limited, a model farm situated in Lagos, a central point from which socio-economic initiatives covering education, job creation, food security, and agricultural value chain efficiency are directed. The farm strives to utilize organic and environmentally-sound approaches and educates farmers and the local community.
