Impressed by his leadership acumen for the past two years, members of the Association of Corporate and Marketing Communication Professionals in Nigerian Banks (ACAMB) have again elected Mr Rasheed Bolarinwa of Polaris Bank as president of the group.

He is to pilot the affairs of the organisation for another two years along with other members of the executive committee (Exco) elected on Wednesday, January 24, 2024, at the group’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) held at the CIBN House, Lagos.

After his election, Mr Bolarinwa expressed gratitude for the trust placed in the new leadership team and emphasised the importance of unity and collaboration to achieve the association’s objectives.

He also acknowledged the contributions of the outgoing executives and thanked them for their dedicated service.

“We are thrilled to announce the new Executive Committee of ACAMB, a team that embodies the spirit of creativity, ambition, and collaboration.

“As we embark on this new term, my commitment to each and every member remains unwavering.

“Working with the new Exco, we’ll continue to strive for excellence, explore new avenues for growth, and uphold the highest standards of professionalism,” he said.

He assured that ACAMB would be “a platform where ideas flourish, relationships strengthen, and the collective wisdom of our diverse membership (from our elders, past Presidents, members and associates), propels us forward.”

Business Post reports that Oze K Oze of First Bank was elected as VP 1, Tolulope Onipede of Guaranty Trust Bank was picked as VP2, Jide Sipe of Ecobank emerged the General Secretary, while Iyke Iheagwam of Access Bank was favoured as the Assistant General Secretary.

Further, Halima Isha of Jaiz Bank was elected as the Financial Secretary, Morolake Philip-Ladipo of Wema Bank is the new Treasurer, Ozena Utulu of Heritage Bank emerged the Social Secretary, and Omede Odekina of United Bank for Africa (UBA) is the Publicity Secretary, replacing the late Abdul Imoyo of Access Bank Plc, who died last December and was buried last week in Lagos.

While presenting the scorecard of the outgoing team, Mr Sipe said “despite the odds, we remained resolute and hopeful for a better future.”

“The goal is to continue to advance, attain lofty heights and better place the Association within the financial sector.

“We promise our commitment to deliver on our founding mandate to continuously protect the image and reputation of the association.

“We remain optimistic and grateful for all your support over the years and in the future that we behold,” he said at the meeting attended by ACAMB members, past leaders and elders.
