Inlaks Computers Limited, an Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and infrastructure services and solutions provider, is currently repositioning its operations with a view to delivering more effective services to its customers.
To this end, the company recently engaged two top management personnel to join in the company's renewed vigour to take its pride of place in its African operations. They are Tope Dare ,director, Sales & Strategy for Infrastructure Business and e-Banking Solutions and Morenike Olanipekun, Programme/Project Manager, IT implementation & Customer Service.
Dare was the Sales and Marketing Manager at NCR (Nigeria) where he was responsible for all direct and indirect sales of NCR's solution portfolio products in Nigeria between June 2010 and December, 2012. At NCR (Nigeria), he remarkably grew the ATM business in his two successive years in the organisation.
He took into NCR a lot of experience gained from the financial customer side as a skilled and expert IT resource having previously worked for Oceanic Bank (now Ecobank) for 10 years in several functions of the Information Technology Group of the bank, where he successfully designed, delivered and supported numerous IT, e-business and ATM projects. Until his resignation at Oceanic Bank, he was the Technical Manager of the ATM Estate of the bank.
Dare has a First Degree in Electronics & Electrical Engineering from Obafemi Awolowo University and MBA in view at Business School Netherlands. He is a Certified Information System Auditor (CISA), Certified e-Business Consultant (CEC), and Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP). He also has several offshore training exposures on ATMs and e-business and he is a conference speaker with vast exposures in the global ATM and Payment industry.
On the other hand, Olanipekun has been a management consultant for 12 years which includes four years in the banking industry as a full time banking staff and four years with the Nigerian practice of PricewaterhouseCoopers.
The development, according to Inlaks, is also part of management's decisions to take the company into its next phase of evolution and implement its strategies to take advantage of current and future market opportunities.
