Mr. Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede is a highly respected private sector leader in Sub-Saharan Africa.
His track record spans 25 years and speaks to entrepreneurial ingenuity in acquisitions and restructurings within the banking industry. This is illustrated by the acquisition, restructuring and compelling customer value proposition of Access in 2002 and overseeing its transformation into one of the top five banks in Nigeria following its acquisition of other banks including the much larger Intercontinental Bank Plc. Under his stewardship, Access Bank was able to grow its customer base from a little over 10,000 in 2002 to roughly 6.5 million as at 2014 with 20,000 employees and an asset base of USD12 billion.
Mr. Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede is the President of the National Council of The Nigerian Stock Exchange, the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Financial Market Dealers Association and the Co-Chairman of the UK-Nigeria Capital Market Task Force. Until his retirement in 2013 he was the Group Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Access Bank Plc. During his tenure, the Bank was transformed to rank amongst Nigeria’s top 5 Banks with a regional presence spanning 9 countries. His distinguished banking career has spanned 25 years of which 10 were spent at GTB (Guaranty Trust Bank Plc) where he resigned as Executive Director in March 2002.
He is an Honorary Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria. He holds a Trium Global EMBA degree from the London School of Economics, NYU Stern Business School and HEC Paris, an LLB degree from the University of Benin and a BL from the Nigerian Law School.
