This belief is largely founded and driven by the fact that the man, who along with his friend and current Group Managing Director/CEO of Access Bank, Herbert Wigwe, transformed Access Bank to what it is today, is known for his deep and elaborate application of innovative change management principles, and particularly for bringing an exciting leadership style in his many previous roles at the top, the most famous of which is the transformational leadership that took place in his 12 years at Access Bank.
This enormous ability to create positive changes and bring about rapid progress is often used to describe what has become of Access Bank in the last 12 years, where belief in leadership ability gave the bank a giant leapfrogging momentum to a full-fledged Tier-1 and currently, one of the five biggest banks in Nigeria.
