JarusHub One-Line Description

The Pharmacist that Rules Finance

JarusHub’s Remarks

With extensive knowledge in the finance world, Mr Iyamabo is one of Africa’s most respected finance chiefs. He honed his finance skills at Arthur Andersen (now part of KPMG). Yet again, the Big 4 firms have shown their reputation as a good training ground for future finance professionals. From Felix of Presco Oil to Suleiman of Sterling Bank and lots more.

There you go, his first degree was in Pharmacy. Yet another person whose career path was “changed” by Big 4 firms, who are known for recruiting brilliant graduates irrespective of academic background and turning them accountants, consultants, tax professionals etc.
