Access Bank appoints Bolaji Agbede as acting CEO after Wigwe’s death

Access Holdings Plc has appointed Bolaji Agbede as the Acting Group Chief Executive Officer (CEO)

This is in response to the unexpected death of its former Group Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Herbert Wigwe.

This announcement was made by the Board of Directors of Access Holdings Plc on February 12, 2024.

Ms. Agbede, who stands as the most senior founding Executive Director in charge of Business Support within the company, is set to helm the affairs of Access Holdings Plc subject to the approval of the Central Bank of Nigeria.

With an impressive professional background that spans nearly three decades, Ms. Agbede’s career trajectory in banking and business consultancy services has equipped her with a rich blend of expertise and strategic acumen.

Her journey began in 1992 at Guaranty Trust Bank where she steadily climbed the ranks to managerial positions by 2001 and eventually took on the role of Chief Executive Officer at JKG Limited, a business consulting firm, in 2003.

Her association with Access Bank Plc commenced in 2003 as an Assistant General Manager responsible for managing the bank’s portfolio of chemical trading companies.

Her leadership qualities and strategic insight led her to assume the position of the Bank’s Head, Group Human Resources between 2010 and 2022.
