He joined the World Bank/IFC in Washington, DC, in September 1986, as part of the distinguished Young Professionals program. Mr. Edun worked at the World Bank on economic and financial packages for various Latin American and Caribbean countries, including the Dominican Republic and Trinidad, as well as in the Far East with Indonesia and India.

He has been the Chairman of Chapel Hill Denham Group since March 2008.

Pls remove Sanusi Lamido's name. Asiwaju does not need a controversial and lousy political minded man in CBN at this point. The industry is yet to recover from his lousy and clumsy intervention in 2009 with d attendant Amcon problem. Nigeria needs a fresh perspective in CBN not a recycled element. Moreover he is not a core BAT guy. Watch out for the likes of Fola Adeola, founding MD of GTBank.
