Mr. Timothy Oguntayo is the pioneer MD/CEO of Skye Financial Services Limited (the investment banking arm of Skye bank) before the Bank's divestment from it in 2012. Mr Timothy is a representative of the Bank on the Board of Unified Payment Services Limited. He equally served on the Board of Skye Stockbrokers Limited, Law Union & Rock Insurance Plc. Kakawa Discount House Limited.
Following Mr. Kehinde Durosinmi-Etti's retirement from the Board effective July 31, 2014, Timothy was appointed Acting GMD/CEO from April 15, 2014 and substantive GMD/CEO from August 1, 2014. Prior to this appointment as GMD/CEO, Timothy was the Bank's Executive Director responsible for the supervision of Corporate and Investment Banking Group, Commercial Banking in the South–West Region and all the international banking subsidiaries of the Bank.
Mr. Oguntayo has vast experience in financial advisory services and structuring of project finance across several sectors. He was part of the team that steered the successful merger of Prudent Bank with the other legacy institutions forming Skye bank, and has since been a core member of the executive team driving the growth of the Bank to its present height.
Timothy's multi–disciplinary background adequately prepares him for the responsibilities of his new office. He is a known strategist with immense ability to innovate, and proffer solutions in sometimes complex situations. He is well respected in the financial circles both at home and abroad as a thorough bred manager and technocrat, and as a builder of relationships. It is therefore not surprising that under his leadership, the Bank successfully acquired Mainstreet bank and seamlessly integrated the products and services, processes, human capital and IT amongst others.
Mr. Timothy Oguntayo is an alumnus of the Prestigious INSEAD, Fontainebleau in France.
