FOUR Executive Directors of Skye Bank Plc have tendered their voluntary resignation letters, the bank announced in a statement yesterday.
The directors who had served in executive management capacity for nearly two years were part of the new board of the bank which came into being following the July 4, 2016 intervention of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and subsequent re- constitution of the bank’s board.
Those who resigned are Mr. Idris Yaku- bu, Mrs. Markie Idowu, Mrs. Abimbola Izu and Mr. Bayo Sanni. Saturday Sun learnt that they had all served under the management team led by the former Managing Director/ CEO of the bank, Mr. Tunde Ayeni, who was replaced in the change that brought the incumbent in. “It was, therefore a matter of time for them to also go,” a source hinted.
In order to ensure a smooth leadership progression and service delivery to its customers, the bank announced that the following senior officers, all General Managers had been reassigned immediately to oversee the affected directorates: Mr. Se- gun Opeke the Lagos Commercial Direc- torate, comprising Corporate, Commercial and Retail, Mr. Ayo Abina the South Directorate and Mr. Femi Aribaloye the Risk Management Directorate.
Group Managing Director of the Bank, Mr. Tokunbo Abiru, thanked the Executive Directors for their service to the bank, noting that they had contributed immensely to the successful leadership transition which commenced last year.
One of the Executive Directors who spoke under anonymity noted that “having put in some time in the bank, resignation from service is not new in the industry. New structures will always create new opportunities and challenges, I think this is the right time to step aside for others to also contribute to the growth of the Bank.”
