Sterling Bank Appoints Abubakar Suleiman As CEO by Gerrard59(m): 6:30am On Jan 13, 2018
The CEO of Sterling Bank, Mr. Razaq Yemi Adeola, will, effective 1 April 2018, step down as CEO of the bank.

In his place, Mr. Abubakar Suleiman, the Executive Director, Finance and Strategy, has been appointed CEO.

Mr. Abubakar has a bachelors in Economics from the University of Abuja, a Masters degree in Major Program Management from the University of Oxford, and has attended various executive education programs at INSEAD, Harvard, Stanford, Wharton, and Said Business Schools.

He began his career as an Experienced Staff Assistant at Arthur Andersen (now KPMG Nigeria), before moving to MBC International Bank (now First Bank) as a Management Associate and later worked in Citibank Nigeria in roles spanning Treasury and Asset & Liability Management.

From there, he joined Trust Bank of Africa in 2003 as the Head of Treasury and Finance before it merged with other banks to become Sterling Bank in 2006. Following the merger in 2006, he was appointed Group Treasurer; a position he held until 2011 when he assumed the role of Integration Director – tasked with managing and integrating Equitorial Trust Bank (ETB) into Sterling.

In 2012, he was named the Chief Financial Officer and was appointed to the Board in April 2014 with responsibility for the financial performance of the Company; and directly overseeing the Finance and Performance Management, Strategy and Innovation, Brand Management and Communication, and Human Resource Management Department.

Coincidentally, Jarushub interviewed Mr. Suleiman few weeks before his appointment as the CEO. If only we had predicted his appointment wink

http://www.jarushub.com/q-a-with-abubakar-suleiman-sterling-bank-cfo/

An excerpt from the interview "Your counsel to young graduates to start their career in consulting and with professional services firms is a sound one. I started my career with Arthur Andersen and without doubt it made the difference in my career in many ways.

Apart from being some of the most prestigious firms around, consulting and professional services firms in the class of the Big Five are the equivalent of going to Harvard because they have best-in-class learning environments which help employees build knowledge, expertise and professional network fast. They transform smart and intelligent young professionals into knowledge workers who no longer have to market themselves as hard as most of their peers. In my opinion, they provide the best on-the-job education any young professional can get because of the sophisticated and thorough internal trainings open to all employees."

Jarushub's comment:

Arthur Andersen (now KPMG) is a sure corporate training ground for fresh graduates. Our own McKinesy and Company when it comes to having her alumni being appointed as CEOs/CFOs/GMD. But I have this predilection for PwC.

From Jarushub, we felicitate with Mr. Suleiman and wish him and his team a fruitful time at Sterling Bank.

How do you mean? This is a bank with diverse culture and not a religious centre. Mind you, the outgoing MD, Yemi Adeola, is a Yoruba Muslim. Has the Bank fallen?

For the benefit of doubt, I'm a Christian. Don't let's be sentimental.

Cheers.

Each and every customer of theirs is their number one customer. They treat them as the one and only customer of the Bank. This is the concept of the "One Customer Bank".
