Former group managing director of Access Bank Plc, Mr Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede, will tomorrow emerge as the 18th president of the Nigeria Stock Exchange (NSE).
Aigboje is an exemplary business leader whose achievements have earned other African professionals the admiration and respect of the international business community.
Beginning with the transformation of Access Bank from a lowly-rated Nigerian bank into a leading African financial brand with his partner, Herbert Wigwe, his touch and initiative delivered superior value to stakeholders and the African continent.
A quintessential banker and outstanding manager of resources, his uncanny ability to bring dreams alive has earned him a pride of place in the chronicle of successful corporate restructuring in the world, and the transformation story of Access Bank under his leadership was listed a case study for MBA students in leading Business Schools across the hemisphere.
Access Bank, which is now credited with the most successful growth trajectory in the history of banking in Africa and perhaps in the EME, was incorporated in February 1989 as a privately owned commercial bank, obtained a banking licence and commenced business in May 1998. The bank converted to a public limited liability and was listed on the NSE in November 1998.
