TIPS: Tony Elumelu Brands Himself in these 5 effective ways

The Nigerian billionaire businessman is more than simply a strolling pose in his distinctive red socks and black suit. Tony Elumelu has had an enormous impact on the African commercial setting. Tony Elumelu is the Chairman of the UBA Group, a multinational Pan-African bank, and the CEO of Heirs Holdings, a family-owned investment firm.

He has a majority stake in Transcorp Group, a publicly traded Nigerian conglomerate with activities in hospitality, farming, oil, and power.

Here are five effective ways Tony Elumelu brands himself.

  • His distinct sense of fashion

Tony Elumelu is a billionaire with style. One thing you can’t deny about this 59-year-old billionaire is his immaculate sense of style.

As a corporate executive, he has a closet full of clothing for any occasion. Elumelu generally dresses in black or navy suits with a red tie and socks as part of his brand identification. Red can be found throughout the majority of the firms he runs, including UBA, The Tony Elumelu Foundation, and Heirs Holdings.

Since the dress code has become the standard, every male employee at UBA is obligated to observe it, and Tony sets a good example by doing so.

  • His mentality is one of independence.

Tony Elumelu’s success did not come by chance. His growth was organic, as he went through the most difficult steps to get to where he is today.

The road to success is not linear; it is up and down. You must be very determined and prepared to do whatever is required for your success.” Elumelu said.

  • He is an excellent storyteller.

Tony Elumelu makes time to tell his story on social media on a regular basis. He makes out time to share stories, unlike many other billionaires who delegate or avoid social media, whether it be about his personal life, plans, or opinions.
