Paul Umoru
Head, Analytics and Cybersecurity Business

“Take The First Step In Faith. You Don't Have To See The Whole Staircase, Just Take The First Step.” - Martin Luther King Jr.

Goal oriented and Results driven! Paul’s tunnel vision on the things that matter coupled with his wealth of international experience in Telecoms Management/Marketing is what stands him out in any crowd. He holds a Master’s degree in Telecoms with Business and Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science & IT with BCS from the Chartered Institute of IT. He is also a graduate of the University College London (UCL) in the United Kingdom and started his career as a Network Engineer at Suburban Telecom.

Paul is a people person, whose career in Business Analytics, Cybersecurity business, sales and customer service has helped him amass a spectrum of skills relevant for taking brands global. He owes his expertise to a number of globally significant brands; XLN Business Services UK, Global Telecom and Technology (GTT). He was part of the team that successfully integrated Inteliquent Network during its acquisition and eventual enlisting of GTT on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).

The Small Business and Entrepreneurship landscape in Africa is at the heart of Paul’s life goals. He is a strong advocate for developing improved ease of intra-continental trade by eliminating costs of transactions, access to credit and other factors that will inadvertently position Africa as the economic fortress for the rest of the world to look upon.

With two beautiful kids as proof of his love for family, Paul loves to run, swim, body build and roller skate recreationally. He used to have a crippling fear of heights but a dare devil ride similar to bungee jumping was all it took to lose it mid air… literally.
