Tayo was a banker up until September 2002 when he decided to actualise his dream of developing Treasurers and Treasury departments by giving full attention to financial markets capacity building (empowerment).
His quest for bigger challenges and unfettered access to sound treasury practices fired his enthusiasm for higher responsibilities and better exposure whilst in banking. He was appointed at various times as the Market Risk Management Officer in FSB International Bank Plc (now Fidelity Bank Plc) in 1996; Head, Currency Trading in Lead Merchant Bank (which later became Leadbank) in 1999 and Head, Access Bank Treasury in 2000.
He served as a committee member of Money Market Association of Nigeria – MMAN (now Financial Markets Dealers Association – FMDA) from 1999 and 2002. Between 2000 and 2002 he single handedly anchored the in-house treasury training for new hires with unparalleled passion during his stay in Access Bank, making positive impact on the careers of the budding trainees.
Tayo made valuable contributions in the development and production of financial markets modules. He plays active roles in harnessing the relationships between the CBN, other regulators and market operators via workshops and other activities that support actualising the dream Nigerian financial markets, in line with the reforms and development imperative in Nigeria.
He has considerable exposure to international treasury standards and practice.
Tayo is presently the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of FDHL
