Not often is it said that women are major controlling figures in business but KIko Davis is different seeing that now, she is the majority shareholder of one the biggest black-owned banks in the US.
YEN.com.gh has come across the story of Kiko Davis, a 46-year-old African-American who is the only black woman in the US to own a bank.
Davis, according to Amsterdamnews.com, is the highest shareholder of the First Independence Bank based in Detroit, Michigan.
First Independence is among the top 10 black-owned banks in the whole of the US and that makes Davis the boss of one of Black America's most successful businesses.
First Independence may not itself be one of the biggest banks in the world but if the US market should be factored in, Davis owns one of the biggest black-owned banks in the world.
In an interview with Rolling Out, she said that what makes her unique as an African-American female leader is her ability to genuinely connect with people and inspire a culture of synergy.
"It’s a God-given talent that comes naturally," she reportedly said.
"People tend to lend the very best of themselves when they feel leaders are passionate about them and their environment."
Davis hopes more black people will follow in her footsteps as she feels there is a need for the world to see the success of black people in different fields.
