Tony O Elumelu, Heirs Holdings Founder and Chairman

Tony O Elumelu is a successful Nigerian entrepreneur and philanthropist.

He is Chairman of Heirs Holdings, founded in 2010, which is a proprietary investment company operating a portfolio of businesses across the African continent in the financial services, real estate and hospitality, oil & gas, power, agribusiness and healthcare sectors.

Elumelu serves as Chairman of Transcorp, a publicly quoted company, and is the Vice Chairman of the National Competitiveness Council of Nigeria.

Tony Elumelu is the originator and leading proponent of the term ‘Africapitalism’.

In 2005, Elumelu spearheaded the acquisition of the United Bank for Africa (UBA). Within five years, the single-country bank was transformed into a pan-African institution with over 7 million customers in 19 African countries, creating one of Africa’s most powerful financial services brands.

Tony Elumelu was recently recognized by Forbes Magazine as one of “Africa’s 20 Most Powerful People in 2012.”

In addition, the New African Magazine featured him in their list of the “100 Most Influential Africans in Business.”

He was recently conferred the title of Commander of the Order of the Niger (CON) by the Nigerian president for his service in promoting private enterprise.
