Currently, Ademola is an Executive Council member and Head of Human Capital Management at Oando Energy Resources, a $2 billion E&P company listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange. His role covers the entire spectrum of HR responsibilities from strategy to implementation, and supervises the company’s business operations in Toronto, Calgary, London, Port-Harcourt, Abuja, and headquartered in Lagos.

Ademola is a scholar of the Said Business School, University of Oxford, and HEC Business School, Paris where he studied Consulting and Coaching for Change. He trained as a consultant at Oxford Management Consulting, UK, and is a member of the Institute of Management Consultants. A SEC-certified Market Analyst, Ademola holds a B.Sc. in Urban and Regional Planning from the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, and an Executive Masters Certificate in Project Management from the PM College, London.
