Nigerian bank revamps management team with four appointments. 

Nigeria’s Access Bank has announced four new executive appointments in the wake of the impending retirement of CEO Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede.

The role of chief operating officer and deputy group managing director goes to Obinna Nwosu. He has been with Access Bank since 2002 and held the position of head of retail banking until December 2012, when he took a year’s study leave.

Ojinika Olaghere, who joined Access Bank in 2007 from Ecobank, assumes the role of executive director of operations and information technology while Elias Igbinakenzua, who joined in July from Zenith Bank, where he was executive director of corporate banking, has been made executive director of corporate and investment banking.

Roosevelt Ogbonna, a former divisional head in the corporate banking team, is now an executive director of corporate banking. He joined from Guaranty Trust Bank in 2002.
