Access Holdings returns Aig-Imoukhuede as board Chairman

 

Access Holdings has chosen Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede as its chairman. He had served as the pioneer CEO of Access Bank, the group’s commercial banking division before it evolved into a holding company.

 

He and Herbert Wigwe bought Access Bank in 2002 and transformed it into Nigeria’s biggest lender by market value.

 

From the year of its acquisition to 2013, Mr Aig-Imoukhuede managed the bank, assisted by Mr Wigwe, the managing director of Access Holdings, who died in a chopper crash in the US last month aged 57.

 

“Following extensive consultations with key stakeholders, the holdco board decided to invite Mr Aig-Imoukhuede to the helm of governance,” Access Holdings said in a statement to the Nigerian Exchange on Wednesday.

 

He replaces Abubakar Jimoh, who had functioned in an acting capacity since the demise of former Chairman Bababode Osunkoya last November.

 

“I am thrilled to be back in active service to the Access Group ecosystem. I am confident that working with our directors, our exceptional team of executives and our best-in-class banking and finance professionals, we will deliver outstanding value to our esteemed stakeholders,” Mr Aig-Imoukhuede was quoted as saying.
