African Bank has on Thursday announced the appointment of Basani Maluleke as a new chief executive officer of African Bank holdings limited, effective from April 1, following the retirement of Brian Riley…
The chairman of the board, Louis von Zeuner said: “The board welcomes the formal appointment of Basani as CEO, following a successful induction process since July 2017.
“Basani has been an integral part of executing African Bank’s turnaround strategy since her appointment as a non-executive in July 2015 and subsequent transition to group executive for operations on July 3, 2017. We look forward to working with her in her capacity as CEO”.
Maluleke said: “I am encouraged with the progress we have made over the past several months, to reposition African Bank into a competitive retail bank. Our executive team is supported and challenged by an independent and diversely skilled board, a culture which bodes well for building solid checks and balances across the business”.
