Tidjane Thiam - CEO Prudential UK
Tidjane Thiam is the incoming CEO of Prudential a UK based financial services company with over 20 million customers. Tidjane (a native of Côte d'Ivoire) is the first black person to lead a FTSE 100 listed company. He also had a storied carrier in the public sector of the Ivory Coast as Minister of Planning and Development among other roles. I wasnt able to find much detailed record of his actual accomplishments online but he has undoubtedly broken down many barriers on his way to the top.
