ADEOLA, Bolarinwa Babalola (DGM)

He started his career in the insurance industry as a graduate Trainee with the then Universe Reinsurance Company Limited in 1993; whilst in Universe Reinsurance, he worked in different sections of the company’s Technical department – Treaty, Facultative, Claims and Marketing. He left Universe Reinsurance in July 2001 to First Chartered Insurance Company Limited where he headed the Reinsurance and Claims department; with the experience he had garnered from Universe Reinsurance, he was able to promptly reorganized First Chartered’s Reinsurance and Claims departments to what obtained in the industry then. In April 2003, Adeola (as he is fondly called) moved to Admiral Insurance Company Limited as the Head of the Reinsurance and Claims under the leadership of the erudite Insurance Marketer, Mr. Olusegun Omosehin (Managing Director/CEO). Adeola contributed in no small measure to reinvigorate Admiral’s Claims and Reinsurance department; as the Claims Manager, he ensured effective administration of claims which to a reasonable extent led to the huge success recorded by Admiral in its AUTO PLUS (an internally modified Motor insurance policy by Admiral) insurance policy. Adeola had a stint with Crusader Insurance Plc following the merging of Admiral Insurance with Crusader Insurance Plc between February and April 2007. He joined Nigeria Liability Insurance Pool later in May 2007 as the Head of Technical contributing in no small measure to the successes and the various innovations that the Pool had witnessed in the last ten (10) years. An Associate of the Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria (CIIN), Adeola had his first degree in Insurance from University of Lagos, a Master in Business Administration (MBA) from the prestigious Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife and a Master of Science (M. Sc.) degree in Marketing from University of Lagos.
