Halima Dangote’s impressive strides
Halima Dangote, one of the beautiful daughters of Africa’s richest man, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, has continued to take the leading role in her father’s business empire.
Halima has just been appointed as the Group Executive Director, Commercial Operations of Dangote Industries Limited, one of Africa’s largest and most diversified business conglomerates.
It was gathered that Halima, a trustee of the Aliko Dangote Foundation, is returning to the group after serving on secondment in several capacities across two of its business units over the last five years.
In her most recent role, she served as executive director of Dangote Flour Mills. Remarkably, she led the turnaround of the business from loss in turnover to a profitable status, a feat derived from consistent high performance over time.
Halima, who has a strong passion for the empowerment of women, is the President of the Board of the Africa Centre in New York, United States (US), a Board member of Endeavour Nigeria, as well as member of the Women Corporate Directors (WCD).
