Erstwhile Executive Director in charge of Market Operations and Technology at the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE), Mr Adeolu Bajomo, has now joined the board of directors of Access Bank Plc, a tier one lender in the country.

Mr Bajomo resigned from the nation’s stock market regulator late last year after being involved in the transformation of the regulatory agency digitally.

He is joining the board of Access Bank as the Executive Director in charge of Information Technology and Operations of the organisation.

This information was confirmed by Access Bank in a statement issued on Friday.

Mr Bajomo is taking over the position following the resignation of Mrs Ojinika Olaghere from Access Bank Plc.

Mr Bajomo is a globally focused financial services industry executive with significant achievements cutting across banking, insurance and capital market.

While at the NSE, he delivered market-wide transformation initiatives that firmly established it as the second largest bourse in Africa by market capitalization with over 7 million investors.

Prior to his work at the NSE, Mr Bajomo had worked as Regional Head of Transformation Programme at Barclays Bank Plc UK from 2007 to 2011.

He was also Head of IT Strategy and Systems at Pearl Insurance Group UK from 2006 to 2007; and IT Director at Fortis Bank UK from 1997 to 2006.

Mr Bajomo holds an MBA from CASS Business School; MSc Information Systems Engineering from South Bank University, London and a BSc in Civil Engineering from University of Ife.

He is a chartered member of the British Computer Society and a member of Institute of Directors.

Commenting on the appointment, Chairman of Access Bank, Mrs Mosun Belo-Olusoga, stated that, “We are very delighted to welcome Mr Bajomo on the board of Access Bank.

“He brings on board very relevant banking industry and significant board room experience from global leading institutions.

“His appointment will inevitably improve the skill set and diversity of our board and support our digital and retail aspirations and quest to become the world’s most respected African bank.”
