Ecobank Transnational Incorporated (ETI), the parent company of Ecobank Group, has announced the appointment of Mr Tomisin Fashina as its new Group Executive for Operations and Technology.
The appointee will occupy the position in addition to his existing role of the Managing Director of eProcess International, a statement from the lender confirmed.
With the appointment, Mr Fashina will succeed Mr Eddy Ogbogu, following the latter’s recent retirement after serving the group for 11 years.
Speaking on the appointment, Mr Ade Ayeyemi, the Group CEO Ecobank, stated that: “The rapidly accelerating digital adoption by Africa’s citizenry and businesses, together with the explosion in e-commerce across the continent is driving transformation throughout the banking and payment sectors.
“Winning across operations and technology is essential for the Ecobank Group’s short, medium and long-term success, and is an integral requirement of our ongoing determination to continue to meet the evolving expectations of our customers.
“Tomisin is well experienced to ensure this, and his new role provides him with an overarching view of our operations and technology functions.”
Mr Fashina has over 30 years of experience, predominantly in technology management and financial services.
Before joining the Ecobank Group, Mr Fashina was the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Steward Bank Harare Zimbabwe.
He has also been Chief Executive Officer for Yookos, a social media company, and has held several positions at Barclays Bank, including General Manager & Head, Transactional Banking Products, and Channels Management and Director, Cash Management & Payments.
Prior to this, at Citigroup South Africa, he held leadership roles in its Global Transaction Services as Division Head & Director, Client Delivery, sub-Saharan Africa; and Division Head, Electronic Banking & Implementation, sub-Saharan Africa.
He has a BSc degree in Computer Engineering from Obafemi Awolowo University, a Master of Business Administration in Marketing from the University of Lagos and a PhD in Business Management in Leadership from Capella University, Minnesota, USA.
The blockchain brings new financing options to the business market. For example, Bitcoin Cash casino has adapted to only using cryptocurrency. This way, it makes it easier for their customers to deposit and withdraw in a BCH casino. Entrepreneurs have taken note of this and are looking to invest more in crypto than in fiat markets.
