Nigeria:First Bank CEO Joins Bretton Woods Committee OCTOBER 16, 2020 AT 10:33:39 AM

First Bank of Nigeria said its CEO, Dr. Adesola Adeduntan, has been honoured with membership of Bretton Woods Committee (BWC).

The Group Head, Marketing & Corporate Communications, Folake Ani-Mumuney, said First Bank has also joined Bretton Woods Committee as an Organisational Supporter in line with the commitment to demonstrate cooperation and foster global well-being.

The membership, which is by invitation only, is in recognition of Dr. Adeduntan’s sterling leadership qualities including efforts in ensuring that First Bank remains at the forefront in promoting financial inclusion in Africa.

According to Bretton Woods, “We champion efforts to spur economic growth, alleviate poverty, and advance global financial stability.

“Given your leadership and background, we believe you would be a valuable addition to the Bretton Woods Committee”.

Since its founding in 1983, members of BWC include leaders at the top of businesses, academic, among others.

Commenting, Adeduntan said: “On behalf of the board, management and staff of FirstBank, I’m deeply honoured to be recognised as a member of The Bretton Woods Committee.

“In addition, as a contributor, FirstBank remains committed to the goals of the Bretton Woods Committee.

“I look forward to working with other members of The Bretton Woods Committee as we continue to build on the successes achieved over the years.

“With these, we will make the world a better place,” he concluded.

Dr. Adeduntan has since the start of the year received various recognitions and applauses for his priceless leadership and role in promoting economic growth across Africa including the Cranfield Alumnus 2020 award, African Banking Personality of the Year 2019, and very recently, the Forbes Best of Africa Award.
