Access Holdings Appoints Acting CEO

Bolaji Agbede has been appointed as the Acting Group Chief Executive Officer (GCEO) following the unfortunate passing of the former CEO, Herbert Wigwe, who tragically lost his life in a helicopter crash along with his wife, son and a former chairman of the Nigeria Exchange Group, Abimboloa Ogunbanjo.

Bolaji Agbede, with almost three decades of experience in banking and business consultancy services, joined Access Bank in 2003.

She has held various roles, including Head of Group Human Resources and, more recently, the founding Executive Director, Business Support.

Agbede, a seasoned professional with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics and Statistics from the University of Lagos and an MBA from Cranfield University UK, is also a member of the Chartered Institute of Management UK and the Chartered Institute of Personnel Management of Nigeria.

The appointment is pending approval from the Central Bank of Nigeria, and the company emphasizes that it aligns with their robust succession planning practices.

The Chairman of Access Holdings, Abubakar Jimoh, expresses confidence in Agbede’s leadership abilities and her understanding of the company’s culture to guide them toward their strategic vision.
