An alumnus of Lagos Business School’s Executive MBA Programme (EMBA 23), Temitope Adegoroye has been appointed as a partner at Sahel Consulting Agriculture & Nutrition, a company that focused on agriculture and the nutrition landscape in West Africa.
The appointment was announced on April 9, 2021. Adegoroye joined Sahel Consulting organisation in 2013 as an analyst and became an associate partner in 2019. He is a proficient manager in client engagement, project management, and the development and operationalisation of innovative strategies that address complex business challenges.
Adegoroye, a respected expert in the seed systems landscape with a focus on roots and tubers, currently serves as a leader on the BASICS II project, and actively supports the YIIFSWA II project of the company.
With over 10 years of experience in agribusiness and management consulting, Adegoroye has deep knowledge of the dynamics of the formal and informal agricultural markets in West Africa. He holds a BSc in Plant Science from the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ife, a Master of Science degree in Agronomy from the University of Ibadan and an MBA from Lagos Business School.
Adegoroye shared his thoughts on the new role, “Being a partner is an enormous responsibility. It means responsibility for people-performance and business growth. In collaboration with our existing and potential partners and clients, I plan to further build the Sahel brand and make it a point of reference in the food, agriculture, and nutrition landscape in Africa.”
According to Adegoroye, Lagos Business School MBA accelerated his career progression. “I had clear intentions when I pursued an MBA degree; I was a manager at Sahel Consulting when I applied for an MBA and based on my career growth trends, it was important I acquired the skills for leadership and senior management positions. The LBS Executive MBA was perfect for my ambition because the programmes’ structure, content, and delivery methods were designed to prepare me and several high-potential managers for executive management. The facilitators were brilliant, and my classmates were amazing. I am honoured to be a part of the EMBA 23 aka The Great Class. I was promoted to associate partner mid-way into my MBA program in 2019. I appreciate my colleagues and mentors for the support and professional guidance throughout my MBA journey.”
