Guaranty Trust Bank CEO Segun Agbaje is one man who strives for excellence in life and business. His dedication and committed leadership has helped to position GTBank as a major player in the financial services industry. Since he assumed the helm of the bank some years ago, it has witnessed a rise in fortune.
The transformation is such that the bank has been scooping awards more regularly than before. The accolades come from such areas as exceptional service delivery, innovation, corporate governance, corporate social responsibility and management quality. Some of the awards received by the bank since his appointment as chief executive officer include Best Bank in Nigeria by Euromoney; African Bank of the Year by African Banker Award; Best Bank in Nigeria by World Finance UK; Most innovative Bank by EMEA Finance; Best Banking Group by World Business Leader Magazine and Best Bank in Nigeria award by the Banker Awards.
The tireless leader of GTBank recently added a feather to his cap in form of the 2016 Ai Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) 30 CEO of the Year award at this year’s 9th annual Ai CEO Investment Summit, which took place on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly. The prestigious Ai Institutional Investment and Capital Market Awards was instituted in 2007 and honours the best performing stock exchanges, listed companies, investment banks, research teams, regulators, socially responsible companies and sovereign wealth and pension fund investors out of Africa.
With this award, Agbaje joins an exclusive list of African CEOs recognised for exceptional contributions to the business climate. In his usual humble manner, the soft-spoken man deflected all praises and instead dedicated the award to the entire GTBank work force.
