She is Mrs. Sally Mbanefo, who has since resumed with the promise to focus on developing local content of the tourism industry among other priorities.

A statement from the corporation quoted Mbanefo as saying that before we can successfully sell Nigerian tourism brand to the outside world we must address the domestic market potentials, secure the buy-in and confidence of Nigerians in the sector and get Nigerians to be proud of their tourism heritage and industry.
She is a 1986 law graduate of the University of Lagos with 26 years corporate professional experience in banking, manufacturing, and oil & gas, with a stint in private and social entrepreneurial practice.
In 1987, she began her career as a pioneer staff in the treasury department of Abacus Merchant Bank Limited and subsequently in 1989 joined International Merchant Bank Limited where she spent 15 years in Treasury, International Trade, Operations, Loan Recovery, Capital Markets, Shareholder/Investor Relations, Human Capital Management, General Administration and was Chief Foreign Exchange Dealer of the bank before her appointment as Company Secretary/Legal Adviser to the board, the youngest at the time for a publicly quoted company.
Mbanefo managed two public offers for the bank that later became IMB Plc and today FCMB Plc.  She actively led three restructuring exercises for the bank and propelled its conversion from merchant to commercial banking whilst managing the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and other regulatory authorities.
She rose through the ranks to become director of business development in 2002 in IMB Plc and a non-executive director of IMB Morgan Plc (former IMB Securities) whilst still the company secretary.
Mbanefo was head-hunted by Lafarge Cement Wapco Nig Plc as Company Secretary & Head of Support Services, the most senior female executive in Africa at the time. She successfully led a change management exercise whilst also supervising the communications, government affairs, community affairs, legal, board secretariat and administration departments.
Mbanefo subsequently managed a public offer for Lafarge Cement Wapco Nigeria Plc before her invitation to Coca Cola Nigeria and Equatorial Africa Division as the Public Affairs and Communication Director for 10 countries in Africa.
At Coca Cola, she led the team for the FIFA World Cup trophy tour to Nigeria and worked closely with the government to secure top level approvals for the company’s growth and product launch initiatives.
