Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede has been appointed as the non-executive chairman of Access Holdings Plc. Aig-Imoukhuede replaces Abubakar Jimoh, the former chairman of the HoldCo, who remains on the Board as an independent non-executive director.

According to a statement from Access Holdings: “This visionary and accomplished leader is bringing an outstanding record of accomplishments, wealth of expertise and leadership to guide the Group into a new era of success.”

“In response to the untimely passing of the immediate past Group chief executive officer of Access Holdings, Dr. Herbert Wigwe and following extensive consultations with key stakeholders, the Holdco board unanimously decided to invite Aig-Imoukhuede to the helm of governance.

“With an illustrious career spanning several decades in the banking and finance sector, Aig-Imoukhuede has proven to be an exceptional and influential leader, having admirably laid a solid foundation for Access Bank’s success as Group chief executive officer between 2002 and 2013 ably supported by his partner and deputy, the late Dr. Herbert Wigwe who later succeeded him.”

It further states, “under Aig-Imoukhuede’s leadership, Access Bank experienced remarkable growth and established itself as a trusted financial institution within the community.

“The Bank transformed from a minor player into one of Nigeria’s top five banks with presence in nine other African countries and the United Kingdom. Under his stewardship, Access Bank grew its customer base from ten thousand to over six million with more than 5,000 employees and an asset base of $12 billion, achieving numerous milestones and becoming a globally recognized name. His strategic vision, innovative thinking, and deep market insight were instrumental to shaping the Bank’s success.”

The Holding Company added “following his retirement as the Bank’s CEO in December 2013, Aig-Imoukhuede cofounded the Tengen Family Office Limited which oversees a significant portfolio of investments and businesses in banking, finance, insurance, technology, real estate, and energy. Through the Aig-Imoukhuede Foundation, he is focused on building Nigeria’s next generation of government leaders, helping transform public sector effectiveness, and improving access to quality primary health care.”

Abubakar Jimoh expressed his excitement about his return, saying, “Aig-Imoukhuede’s appointment to the Board and subsequent election as chairman is a landmark development for Access Holdings. All our board members are excited about our future.”

Aig-Imoukhuede, said, “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 stakeholders. I am determined that our shared vision which Wigwe gave everything for, will be realised.”
