Verdant Capital opens Lagos office and hires IK Izedonmwen
Ikponmwosa (or Ik. for short) joined Verdant Capital in August, to open Verdant Capital’s Lagos office. Verdant Capital’s office in Lagos is the firm’s fifth office in the continent, the others being Johannesburg, Accra, Kinshasa and Ebene. The physical presence in Nigeria is expected to increase the amount of business the firm executes in Nigeria, a market where Verdant Capital has been active at different stages in the cycle.
Ik has over 18 years investment banking experience in West Africa. Prior to Verdant Capital, Ik performed similar roles at firms including Citi, FBN Capital / FBN Quest Merchant Bank, and most recently, as head of investment banking at FSDH Merchant Bank.
Ik also worked at Procter and Gamble at different stages in his 23-year career.
Ik will support all of Verdant Capital’s business lines focussing on clients in Nigeria.
