Talk about beauty and brain and the wife of billionaire banker and philanthropist, Tony Elumelu, comes to mind. With positions like the Chairman, Heirs Holdings, UBA, Transcorp and The Tony Elumelu Foundation, the Elumelus quite have a great conglomerate in their hands. Dr Awele is one of the very few top bank MDs’ wives that people have not stopped talking about in the fashion and style department.
The mother of five is representing well and participating in all the offerings that crop up in the social calendar. A collector of the finest trinkets, especially gold from the most venerated designers in the world. Awele is now a regular face at most social events and making the best of the opportunity. But Awele does not rock alone; she makes sure her board room- loving hubby also catches in the fun.
She plays an active part in her husband’s conglomerate as the Chief Executive Officer of Avon Medical Services Limited and oversees the healthcare investments of the group. She holds a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery degree from the University of Benin.
