Brokerage fraternity excited as Olutusin becomes chairman, NCRIB Lagos Area Committee

Ademola Olutusin, managing director/CEO, Denos Insurance Brokers Limited has been elected the new chairman of the Lagos Area Committee of the Nigerian Council of Registered Insurance Brokers (NCRIB).

Rotimi Edu, president of the NCRIB speaking at the investiture of Ademola Olutusin appreciated all successive leaders of the Committee.

He said they have all been quite dogged and purposeful in raising the bar of practice of members in this jurisdiction, for which he is quite grateful.

“Of particular note is the outgoing chairman, Olurotimi Olukorede, who is a thorough bred and noble minded practitioner. I will continue to appreciate his support and contributions to various Committees of the National body where he served and his quality inputs into deliberations on the Governing Board where he represented the LAC.”

Edu said there is no doubt that the shoes that he would be metaphorically leaving behind would not be too big for Olutusin, who himself had been a member of the leadership of the Area Committee before now and known as a diligent, committed and foresighted professional with impeccable record of professional service.

“You have assisted us greatly to achieve the ‘Brokers-Centric’ focus of our Council, bearing in mind that a huge number of the Council’s membership are your members. With all sense of modesty, we have been able to raise the bar of our practice and give more hope to members about the brightness and hope in the horizon for all Insurance Brokers in Nigeria.”
