The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Goldlink Insurance Plc, Gbolahan Olutayo, has been named the “2013 Insurance Man of the Year” at the maiden edition of BusinessToday Online Award which held recently in Lagos.
Gbolahan is said to emerge the Insurance Man of the Year amidst strong industry contenders.
According to the Publisher/Editor BusinessToday, Ms. Nkechi Naeche-the organisers of the Award- Olutayo won the Award in recognition of his outstanding efforts and leadership qualities in stabilising the company as well as expanding its portfolio since assuming office in September 2012.
She stated that Goldlink boss deserved the award not just because he got the highest number of votes among the nominees for the Insurance Man of the Year Award category, but also because of the doggedness by which the company scaled through NAICOM regulations and is still standing strong till date.
“I’m really honoured to win this award, for us as a company, we will not fail in delivering our core reason for existence to the Nigerian populace,” Olutayo said.
