From January 1, 2021, Mr Patrick Ajah will become the new Managing Director of May & Baker Plc, the company has announced.

In a disclosure on Monday, the pharmaceutical firm stated that the decision to have Mr Ajah as the head of the management of the company was reached at the meeting of the board of directors held on Thursday, November 26, 2020, at the Muson Centre, Onikan, Lagos.

He will replace the present occupier of the seat, Mr Nnamdi Nathan Okafor, who is retiring as a director and MD of the organisation from December 31, 2020.

His appointment is expected to reposition the company for better efficiency as a result of his vast experience in the pharmaceutical world as well as the sales and market space.

It was stated that Mr Ajah holds a Bachelor of Pharmacy degree from the University of Ibadan in 1994 and also has a MBA (Marketing) from the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife in 2005.

He is said to be a passionate and visionary leader with over two decades of progressive experience and responsibility in a variety of business environments; from pharmaceuticals to FMCG, telecoms and manufacturing.

He brings to the board demonstrable experience in business development, distributor engagement and contracting, P&L oversight, organisational transformation and managing through crisis across countries and cultures in Sub-Saharan Africa and in more than eight reputable international/multinational organisations, the company stated in the disclosure.
