Broadcast Communication expert and chairman of Pinnacle Communications Limited, Sir Lucky Omoluwa has added another feather to his over feathered cap, this time, he was singled out among his numerous peers by the Nigeria Advancement Summit and Awards for the award of Entrepreneur of the year 2015.
This honour did not come to the Delta State born suave businessman by the stroke of luck as his pedigree speaks volume.
Not only that, there is a lot about the taciturn entrepreneur that really steals under your skin. His towering disposition is unequaled.
Omoluwa, who is widely described as a mesmerizing maestro of the broadcast communications industry by industry watchers navigates a personal cultural universe uneasy to caricature or deride as too pedestrian or elitist.
What this unassuming businessman has going for him is that in spite of conquering the business world like a volcano, he does not allow the frills and thrills of vulgar materialism erode the more sublime traits that are prime requirements in an astute businessman.
His razor sharp intellect to a large extent has made great impact in the broadcast communication industry, thereby taking Pinnacle Communications enviable heights.
Notwithstanding the eclipse, fluidity and uncertainty hovering in the country’s business terrain, for Omoluwa, its Eldorado of sorts as Pinnacle Communications Limited has risen to the top on account of his strict adherence to supplying and installing quality and durable broadcast communication equipments that can stand the test of time.
He has a burning desire in ensuring that Nigeria meets the 2015 deadline set for broadcast industry to migrate from analogue to digital by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU).
One outstanding merit Pinnacle has over some of its competitors is that it is endowed with the best team of engineers who were poached from classy broadcast communication firms in the world.
Omoluwa’s predilection for honesty and transparency are legendary and these qualities have endeared him to top notch international businessmen across the world.
One thing you cannot take away from Sir Omoluwa is his penchant for humility and simplicity. He also has a milk of kindness literally flowing in his vein and this explains his passion for philanthropy.
The ceremony took place last Wednesday at the prestigious Transcorp Hilton, Abuja.
According to the chairman award screening committee of Nigeria Advancement Summit and Awards, Rex Idaminabo, the award was bestowed on Sir Omoluwa on account of his excellence and remarkable performance towards national development and his unblemished track record as an entrepreneur.
Pinnacle has consistently won international awards from Nigeria, Ghana, United Kingdom and USA, among them are the Good Business Ethics from Harris Corporation USA, Outstanding Trade Contribution by US government, Outstanding Commitment to Business by Harris Corporation USA, Support of Trade Development by US government and the Dr. Kwame Nkrumah Outstanding Merit Award in recognition of outstanding contribution and achievements as a businessman in the field of communications.
In a rather unprecedented development, Sir Omoluwa was invited to serve as an International Trustee of Religious for Peace at the United Nations in New York last January 2015. He is the first African on the Board of International Trustees to be so appointed.
