Daere Afonya-A Akobo

Founder & GMD

Daere Akobo is an entrepreneur and business mentor. He holds the offices of Chairman with PANA Holdings and of GMD with PE Energy Ltd.

Daere counts over 20 years of experience in the operations of the Oil & Gas sector, across a wide range of the spectrum, including electrical, instrumentation, condition and vibration monitoring, flow metering processes and procurement. In his early career, Daere has worked with the International Petroleum Company of Nigeria as an Electrical Instrumentation Superintendent before moving-on to TOTAL E&P as a Technical Stock Controller supporting the Procurement Department. During his employment with General Electric Nigeria, he stood-out for his business acumen (he was able to quadruple the company's sales during 2007-8), as well as for his social skills (it was repeatedly due to his intervention that disputes between clients and partners of the company were resolved) and was eventually crowned with the award of ''top talent'' throughout the African continent.

At that point, he departed on his own business venture and in 2009, after realizing the need to bridge the gap between user expectations and market offerings in the Nigerian Oil & Gas industry at the time, he founded Plant Engineering Limited, which was later-on renamed to PE Energy Limited. PE Energy soon became recognized for its unassailable integrity and for the attention it lends to regulatory compliance and standards. Daere has made PE Energy an exemplary part of the NCD program, ensuring not only strict compliance with all applicable standards, but setting the bar even higher, through the construction of a Center of Excellence (CoE) in Trans Amadi. Through a wide range of prestigious business alliances, Daere has been strengthening the company’s international business footprint, leading it with a steady pace to a course of solid, sustainable growth.

Daere holds a degree in Applied Physics and is a distinguished alumnus of the prestigious Harvard Business School, the INSEAD Business School and the Manchester Business School. He has been honored with several excellence awards by many European business partners (e.g. the ''Super Vendor Delivery Performance Award'' by Shell, the “Honeywell EMEA Best Sales Award” etc.) and has risen to become a trusted point of reference for many international businesses wishing to enter Nigeria through association with a local party.
