Leadway Assurance Company Limited has unveiled a new logo to commemorate its 50 years of providing insurance service to Nigerians. The ceremony held in Lagos recently was to flag-off series of commemorative events to acknowledge stakeholders who had contributed to the company’s success.
The event which took place in Lagos recently, was led by the Managing Director, Mr. Tunde Hassan-Odukale; Executive Director, General Insurance, Ms. Adetola Adegbayi; erstwhile Managing Director, Mr. Oye Hassan-Odukale and other company executives.
In his message to stakeholders titled: ’50 and Fluid, a Time for Gratitude,’ Hassan-Odukale thanked stakeholders in the Nigerian insurance environment including clients, brokers, partners, staff, well-wishers and the regulator for their contribution towards Leadway’s success story.
“The occasion of our 50th anniversary is a time for reflection and gratitude. Reflection on the strides, successes, and challenges past; gratitude for the journey so far and the opportunities of the future.
“Ours started with the dream of a man who wanted to serve. He knew that to give life to this vision, he would need to work with other people of like minds. …Ever the community man and humanist, our founder, my father, Sir Hassan Olusola Odukale, believed and firmly practiced the saying …’if you want to go fast, go it alone; but, if you want to go far, go with others.”
He added: “The story today will therefore not be complete without the mention of those who took hold of his dream, started the journey with him, kept the faith and sowed their sweat to create the company we see today. Acknowledging them first, I use this opportunity to appreciate every stakeholder that has helped to make Leadway a household name and a respected brand,” he said.
