Our founder and former Managing Director, Ikechukwu Innocent Okoye was a consummate sportsman. He excelled in board and card games, chess, scrabble and poker. He was best known for his outstanding performance in Squash and snooker where he won several awards and international recognition. In his memory, Zircon Marine has committed to promoting snooker in Nigeria through our Sports initiative.

IK Okoye was passionate about improving lives and Zircon Marine has continued in this tradition. We believe that we prosper by helping society prosper. As a result, Zircon Marine is involved in a number of corporate social responsibility initiatives, through the IK Okoye Foundation that promote balanced development and improve both social and financial conditions of people.

Under the umbrella of the IK Okoye Foundation, we have focused our efforts into three main categories: Arts & Culture (M-Initiative), Sports (S-Initiative) and Women Empowerment (W-Initiative).
