Capt Dapo Olumide

Managing Director, Trico Capital Nigeria Ltd.

Has over 30 years of experience in aviation and is a Fellow of the prestigious Royal Aeronautical Society in England. After graduating with a B.Sc degree from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Florida, USA in 1980, he returned to Nigeria in 1982 where he joined AeroContractors Airline as a pilot. He was promoted to Chief Pilot in 1986, before being appointed the Deputy Managing Director of the airline in 2002 at which point he transformed the original Company vision from an exclusively B2B model to the more demanding B2C model.

In 2007 he joined the Africa Finance Corporation as one of its pioneer executives, a strategic career change that gave him a broader understanding of the financial management of multinational organizations. He briefly came out of airline retirement to turn-around Virgin Nigeria Airways, which was struggling under a huge financial debt burden.

Following the successful rebranding and sale of the airline to a private investor in April 2010, he returned to his passion for project development, joining Trico Capital Nigeria as Managing Director.
