Our Man Crush this week is an entrepreneur, CEO, and fabrication engineer who is setting the pace for sustainable development in the automobile industry.
Jerry Mallo unveiled the ‘Bennie Purrie’, the first locally-manufactured carbon fiber sports car in Nigeria, in 2019. This creative innovation creates an excellent strength-to-weight ratio that sets the Bennie Purrie aside as a topnotch, quality standard racing car.
Jerry Mallo who is based in Jos, Nigeria, came up with this impressive automobile to suit the luxurious demands of the Nigerian market and he is currently the CEO of Bennie Agro Ltd. but his path to success wasn’t all easy.
Growing up in Jos with his farmer parents, Jerry had a childhood laced with hardship and rather than succumb to the pressures of society, he transformed the hardship into a passion for machines.
He began his career by pursuing his interest in Engineering and obtaining a degree from the University of Hertfordshire, UK.
He set up Benni Agro, an agricultural equipment manufacturing company, after his return from London but it wasn’t off to a great start as he struggled financially. Subsequently, he found his footing and began saving towards the realization of his dream of building a sports car.
Jerry Mallo is the true definition of when hardwork meets passion, coupled with dedication. His passion and commitment have definitely proven true and we STAN!
