The FirstBank of Nigeria will hold its Banking Group Board Retreat in Ghana this month. The Group Board retreat which will be held in Accra for the first time in the Bank’s 127-year history is under the theme “Winning the Digital Economy: Building Future Proof Capabilities”.
The three-day retreat which will be held between the 18thand 20th November will have in attendance Tunde Hassan Odukale, Board Chairman of FirstBank of Nigeria, U. K. Eke, outgoing FBN Holdings Managing Director, Nnamdi Okonkwo, incoming FBN Holdings Managing Director, Dr Adesola Adeduntan, Chief Executive Officer of First Bank and Subsidiaries, Kofo Majekodunmi, Board Chairman of FBNBank Ghana and several senior executives of the Group.
The retreat will offer the opportunity for the discussion of the bank’s strategy for the next year and beyond. The discussions during the meetings are expected to cover three thematic areas; economic trajectory, accelerating shareholder return and enhancing customer experience and service delivery.
Observers see this move by the FirstBank Group as a further endorsement of their support for and commitment to their subsidiary in Ghana, FBNBank and the Ghanaian economy.
This comes on the back of the recently held FBNbank @25 Gala Dinner in commemoration of FBNBank’s silver anniversary in Ghana where the FirstBank Group Chief Executive Dr Adesola Adeduntan declared that the First Group is committed to supporting FBNBank Ghana to become a significant player in the Ghana market.
Commenting on the retreat, FBNBank Ghana Managing Director, Victor Yaw Asante, said “The choice of Ghana as the venue for the FirstBank Group Retreat is a confirmation of the confidence the Group has in Ghana and also the commitment to continue to support FBNBank in Ghana.
“This is ample testament to our position that FBNBank is well placed to be a significant player in the country’s banking industry for which reason we continue to place our stakeholders at the heart of what we do.
“As FBNBank delivers the ultimate Gold standard of value and excellence in Ghana, we expect to be more systemic and critical to the financial sector and also to the success of businesses in this country”.
