Benedict Peters, the chairman and chief executive officer of Nigeria’s global energy company, Aiteo Group, has been appointed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to serve on the board of advisors for the U.S.-Africa Business Center, according to a statement made available to business a.m.
Peters will join CEOs from many Fortune 500 companies who have a strong presence in Africa, including Banco Prestigío, BP, Caterpillar, Chevron, IBM, MasterCard, Microsoft, and many others on the advisory board.
His appointment follows Peters’ work in Africa as a mega entrepreneur and creator of jobs as well as years as an active business mogul in Africa, qualities matching the mission of the U.S.-Africa Business Center, which is “to build lasting prosperity for Africans and Americans through job creation and entrepreneurial spirit,” the statement noted.
Scott Eisner, the chairman of the centre, in a welcome remark to Peters said: “We value and appreciate the insights from companies such as yours as they not only benefit the Center, but also play a pivotal role in strengthening the ties between the United States and countries throughout Africa.”
