Colson Oladapo Fatanmi, (FCIB)


A former Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Femi Johnson & Company Limited (FJC), Mr. Fatanmi joined FJC in 1973 and served as the Kano Office Manager, the Northern Area Manager and General Manager in charge of Lagos Office. In 1988, he joined the Board of Directors of Femi Johnson & Company as Executive Director in charge of Lagos operations. Whilst at Lagos, he was the arrow head of the Company’s operations as almost 70% of the Company’s income comes from his domain.

In 2001, history beckoned on Mr. Fatanmi when he replaced the late Alhaji L.O.B. Etti as the Managing Director of Femi Johnson & Company Limited. His tenure witnessed a dramatic turnaround in the fortune of the Company as so many accounts including MTN Nigeria were won. Mr. Fatanmi who, up till the moment is still very much loved not only by all staff, but also well respected by the entire industry, retired on the 31st of December 2006 after putting in 33 years of meritorious service.

Mr. Fatanmi is a Fellow of the Nigerian Corporation of Registered Insurance Brokers and a happy family man.
