Access Holdings Plc Appoints Bolaji Agbede as Acting Group CEO Following Tragic Loss

February 13, 2024










In the wake of the tragic helicopter crash that claimed the lives of its former Group Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Herbert Wigwe, along with his wife, son, and a former chairman of the Nigeria Exchange Group, Abimbola Ogunbanjo, Access Holdings Plc has swiftly moved to appoint Ms. Bolaji Agbede as the Acting Group Chief Executive Officer.

The announcement, made by the company’s Board of Directors on Monday and dated February 12, 2024, emphasized the depth of experience and expertise that Agbede brings to the role. With a career spanning nearly three decades in banking and business consultancy services, Agbede has held various key positions within Access Bank since joining in 2003 as an Assistant General.

Her journey within the organization saw her rise through the ranks, serving notably as Head of Group Human Resources between 2010 and 2022. In 2022, she assumed the role of the company’s founding Executive Director, Business Support, a testament to her strategic vision and leadership capabilities.

Agbede holds academic credentials from reputable institutions, including a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics and Statistics from the University of Lagos and a Masters of Business Administration Degree from Cranfield University, UK, obtained in 2002. Additionally, she is a distinguished member of the Chartered Institute of Management, UK, and the Chartered Institute of Personnel Management of Nigeria.

While mourning the loss of Dr. Herbert Wigwe, Access Holdings Plc expressed confidence in Agbede’s ability to steer the company through this challenging period. The appointment is, however, subject to the approval of the Central Bank of Nigeria, as stated by the company’s Board of Directors in their official communication.
