Managing Director and chief executive officer, Oceanic International Bank Limited, Mrs. Ibru spent her first years in marriage raising her children and thereafter, delved into banking, among many other concerns she has taken in her giant strides. She has employed her rich skill and experience to attain the rare feat of being amongst the few women calling the shots at the helm of affairs in financial institutions in the country.
