CORNERSTONE Insurance Plc now operates an e-platform distribution channel as it has commenced 24 hours business operations.
Accordingly, the Board of the company recently appointed Mr. Ganiyu Musa as its Group Managing Director and CEO, to drive the operations of the company.
In an interview with Vanguard in Lagos, Musa said “Right now, Cornerstone is open for business 24 hours a day, driving its product distribution via its e-platform. From your laptop or smart phone, you can log onto Cornerstone website and buy motor cover (comprehensive or third party) and some other products; make payments and print your certificate on the go.”
Musa said that he is a highly experienced management professional and will bring on board his wealth of experience in insurance, reinsurance, audit and consulting, business advisory and financial management.
He said he would be leading the underwriting firms’ growth strategy anchored on quality service delivery via e-platforms to buoy the lot of its teaming clients and shareholders.
Prior to joining Cornerstone, Ganiyu worked at African Reinsurance Corporation for 19 years, holding key positions including Director of Finance and Accounts/Chief Financial Officer for 10 years and Deputy Management Director, Services for five years.
He played a lead role in the creation and initial supervision of the risk management function at Africa Re and supervised the design of the Corporation’s investment guidelines and assets allocation.
Ganiyu was also instrumental in the preparatory work and eventual setting up of the African Reinsurance subsidiary in South Africa, where he subsequently served on the Board and Audit Committee.
