Dr Fadeyi returned to Nigeria in 1973 after acquiring a PhD in Business Administration from University of Southern California, Los Angeles. While in the United States, Dr Fadeyi achieved quick success in the manufacturing and retail industries; however on his return to Nigeria, he moved on to understudy the oil and gas industry by first joining an oil services company and subsequently joining Pan ocean Oil Corporation (Nigeria) Limited in 1974. This singular move launched the presence of Dr. Festus Fadeyi in the oil industry and he has since then been at the helm of affairs- guiding and leading the company’s operational activities.
