Ecobank Boss Heads CIBN Team for 2020 Conference
Managing Director of Ecobank Nigeria, Mr Patrick Akinwuntan, has been chosen to head the Consultative Committee for the 13th Annual Banking and Finance Conference coming up next year.
The conference is organized by the Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria (CIBN) and Mr Akinwuntan’s team would be expected to put plans in place for a successful programme.
It was gathered that the baton of chairmanship of the Consultative Committee fell on the renowned banker at an event held on Wednesday in Abuja, the nation’s capital city.
According to CIBN, the choice of the pan African Ecobank was hinged on the massive and consistent support for the institute over the years from the lender, stressing that it has absolute confidence on Mr Akinwuntan to deliver based on his antecedents.
The Conference Consultative Committee is responsible for the planning and organizing a successful conference next year.
It would determine the conference venue; theme and sub-themes; secure the acceptance of the conference facilitators and design the conference programme of events, amongst others.
