Women in Business: Remi Duyile
Former VP, Bank Of America, MD/CEO Premier Mortgage Solutions
Duyile has come a long way from the small Nigerian town of Ondo where she was born and raised. Over the course of less than 18 years, Dr. Duyile immigrated to the United States and managed to climb the corporate ladder of one of the nation’s most revered banking institutions, Bank of America. It was here that she shattered glass ceilings when she was appointed Vice President of Retail, Premier, and Mortgage Banking. Duyile served in this role managing over 600 financial portfolios of high net-worth clients for 17 years, until she decided that it was time to step into her true calling of helping others as a serial entrepreneur.
Having achieved so much within her own life, Duyile recognises the power in breaking one’s own self limitations. With this in mind, she has made it her life’s purpose to empower others in recognising their own strength and abilities. Duyile has since validated her status as a speaker, gaining numerous certifications with The John Maxwell Group, Jim Rohn, and under the mentorship of renowned motivational influencer Les Brown.
As a certified speaker, trainer, and entrepreneur, Duyile has made others the focus of her life and business. In the years since leaving corporate America, she has established various foundations and in support of this vision including: her own mortgage company ( Premier Mortgage Solutions), an International consulting firm (Image Consulting Group), as well as a non-profit providing mentorship and financial literacy for women and girls (Legacy Premier Foundation). Under the umbrella of her companies she has become an empowerment mentor, community mobilizer, certified trainer, as well as an international keynote speaker.
