Miriam Olusanya has been appointed as the new Managing Director of Guaranty Trust Bank (GTBank).
Thenewsstar.com.ng reports that this was made known in a notice signed by the company’s secretary, Erhi Obebeduo, to the Nigerian Exchange Group Limited (NGX).
Recall that during the bank’s investor earnings in September 2020, the former MD Segun Agbaje disclosed that the bank was looking for a new MD.
He said five of the bank’s Executive Directors were in line for the top job and were at the concluding stages of the recruitment process.
Olusanya, who until her appointment was an Executive Director at the bank, becomes the first female Managing Director in GTBank’s history.
She has over 20 years of banking experience across various units, including Transaction Services, Asset and Liability Management, Financial Markets, Corporate Finance and Investor Relations.
She joined GTbank as an Executive Trainee and rose to the position of a General Manager until she was appointed Executive Director.
