Jerry Ihejirika is the founder of the Importation Business Group, a virtual community of importers from around the world, the Assistant Manager at Ginax International Enterprises, a registered import, export and general merchandising company, and the founder of the Jerry Ihejirika Inner Circle, a group of high-seasoned corporate clients who privately invests in his importation business and earn passive rewards on a weekly or monthly basis.
In the early 2000s, after finishing his secondary school, Jerry joined his dad’s importation business at Idumota, Lagos Island. He helped the company to generate more sales which in turn made it possible for the company to fund the construction of its retail store and warehouse at the Tradefair Complex.
In 2015, his dad moved to the newly constructed store and warehouse at the Tradefair Complex and Jerry became in-charge of business activities at the Lagos Island. His products research, negotiating, marketing and sales skills helped him increase the company’s sales and profit margins as well as establishing him as one of the young and most experienced importers in his products niche during the early days.
In 2008, while still being active in the business, Jerry gained admission to pursue a bachelor’s degree in project management technology (PMT) at the Federal University of Technology Owerri (FUTO), Imo State. During his academic pursuit, he discovered there was a low-level of awareness of the project management profession in Nigeria and decided to do something about it. He began to create more awareness about the project management profession in Nigeria and also contributed in promoting the profession around the world via the Internet.
Jerry’s effort, commitment, and passion in creating more awareness and promoting the project management profession earned him some international recognition from some of the top and most recognised project management professionals from around the world. His project management skill is currently playing a critical role in his importation business.
In January 2018, Jerry founded the Importation Business Group, a virtual community of over 5000 people who are highly interested in the importation business. Members of the community come together to share ideas, insights, and tips on the importation business, and also to network with each other.
In May 2018, he created the Jerry Ihejirika Inner Circle, a private group of high-level corporate clients who are interested in making passive income from the importation business. What they do is to secretly partner with Jerry, invest a certain amount in his importation business, and earn passive rewards on a weekly or monthly basis.
