He has integrated people, processes, and technology as well as developed bespoke products that satisfy the needs of customers making CBG the second largest banking branch network in Ghana with 114 branches and an ultra-modern SME centre that serves the needs of our SME customers.

Ms. Osei-Poku, on the other hand, has led her team through a successful rebranding exercise of the bank from Barclays Africa Group into Absa Bank. Under her leadership, the organisation witnessed tremendous progress in the way of promoting intergenerational, sustainability and driving thoughts of leadership through the provision of insights to help in the solution of societal challenges.

She has also demonstrated Absa Bank’s commitment to the SME sector by providing workable solutions to the needs of customers which is key to Ghana’s economic growth.
