Guest Profile:

Mr. Nnamdi Nathan Okafor is  the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer (MD/CEO) of May & Baker Nigeria Plc, a position he was appointed on February 1, 2011. He has led the company to achieve several distinguishing heights. Top among these achievements  is the attainment of the World Health Organization (WHO) current Good Manufacturing Certificate (cGMP) in 2014, one of the few African pharmaceutical manufacturers to attain this status.


Under Okafor's  management  the Joint Venture with the Federal Government on vaccine production was ratified  and the plans to berth Nigeria's locally made vaccines is now unstoppable. But more importantly,  he is driving  May & Baker to become a leading pharmaceutical brand in sub Saharan Africa, which motivation informed the new vision of the company adopted in 2017.


Okafor was appointed to the Board of May & Baker Nigeria Plc on the 11th of June 2003, as Executive Director, Sales & Marketing. In this capacity he restructured the local Pharma business into what remains today the biggest contributor to the company's revenue and profit achievements by far. In January 2006, he was appointed the General Manager/Chief Operating Officer of the Foods Division with the responsibility of championing the company's diversification into the foods business.


He commenced his career as a medical representative in May & Baker Nigeria Plc in October 1985. He put up such a superlative performance in his early years that he became the youngest staff ever to be promoted to an Area Manager position after just 2 years as a representative. He continued with this five star performance, winning the best regional performance award back-to-back on several occasions. This made him rise very rapidly, leapfrogging his seniors to several key positions including; Training Manager, National Sales Manager and Head of Sales & Marketing.


Mr. Okafor holds  a  second class Honours (upper division) degree in Pharmacy from the University of Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo University) , 1983 . He  went on to bag a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree in Marketing from the Enugu State University of Technology in 1998 and was in the year 2000 AMP 10 graduating class of the prestigious Lagos Business School and an alumnus of the Lagos Business School.
