The Managing Director of Access Bank Dolapo Ogundimu, has been voted the “Most Reputable Ghanaian Bank CEO” in a ranking poll led by South African based Reputation Management Agency, Reputation Poll and leading PR and Rating Agency, Avance Media.
The ranking poll which featured all 34 distinguished leaders of Class 1 Banks in Ghana, had Mr. Dolapo Ogundimu emerging the Most Reputable Bank CEO with 17% of votes from the over 3,000 voters who participated in the polling exercise.
Dolapo is a seasoned banker with over three decades of high-level professional banking experience in the sub-region. He has been recognized as a change manager and contributor to the development of the financial services industry in Nigeria, Sierra Leone and Ghana.
He is the first Managing Director to have won the coveted Ghana Banking Awards “Bank of the Year” with two different Banks, an accolade he still holds among his peers. Until his appointment in 2012 as Managing Director of Access Bank Ghana, Dolapo pioneered Guaranty Trust Bank to become one of the most successful banks in the industry.
Forbes ranked entrepreneur and founder of Reputation Poll, Barr. Rex Tonye Idaminabo admonished all the Bank CEOs in Ghana and urged them to use their experiences to mentor young people to become better business leaders across the continent.
Access Bank’s growing reputation has come at no surprise, given its recent achievements in the Ghanaian banking industry. Access Bank in December last year, became the first Bank with Nigerian heritage to list on the Ghana Stock Exchange.
A few weeks ago, the Bank also retained its leadership position as the “Most Influential Bank on Social Media” for 2015 and 2016. These strides, according to many industry watchers fits perfectly with its vision of becoming one of the Most Respected Banks in Ghana.
