Dr. Olabanjo Obaleye, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Infinity Trust Mortgage Bank Plc - one of Nigeria’s leading national Primary Mortgage Institutions - is a seasoned and consummate banker, chartered accountant, mortgage and real estate development expert, and corporate strategist with over 20 years cognate experience in commercial and mortgage banking. He began his banking career in Afribank Nigeria Plc (now Skye Bank), in 1991, and later moved to the defunct Midas Bank and Societe Bancaire Nigeria Limited respectively, where he, at various times, worked and headed all aspects of banking operations from Tellering, Reconciliation, Clearing, Customer Service, Internal Control, Marketing to Branch Management.
In 2004, Mr. Obaleye joined Infinity Trust Mortgage Bank Plc (formerly known as Infinity Trust Savings and Loans Limited), as Acting General Manager, at a very precarious period when the bank was at the brink of collapse having received a notice from the Central Bank of Nigeria to wind down operations within 30 days due to its high negative balance sheet. Undeterred by the nearly hopeless situation he met on the ground, Mr. Obaleye immediately took the bull by the horns by developing and implementing several far-reaching “game-changers” which helped to steer the collapsing bank back to profitability within a short period. Sequel to this uncommon feat, he was promoted to the substantive MD/CEO in 2006.
