Lola (Coker) Shojobi is the CEO and Founder of Resource Africa Group (formerly Resource Nigeria) a career platform that connects African leadership talent with exciting career opportunities on the continent. Over the past five years, Lola has partnered with over 60 leading companies, such as Barclays Absa, Bain & Company, LVMH, and Jumia Group and connected them with competitive African professionals to help fill the management talent gap on the continent.

Lola has always had a vision of connecting talented Africans with opportunities back home. Lola received her bachelor's degree in Psychology from New York University and subsequently completed her MSc in Investment Management at Cass Business School London. Upon completion of her studies, Lola immediately took an opportunity to help grow the technology sector in Nigeria and eventually went on to continue working in the market development field at General Electric. While working in market and business development, Lola partnered with several other leading institutions to find talented Nigerians back in the diaspora to join their organizations.

Lola’s vision is to reverse the African brain drain on the continent and fill the talent pipeline with globally competitive Africans that can promote a new African story that highlights our diversity, accomplishments and excellent. Resource Africa Group has provided the right platform to execute this vision one connection at a time.
