First Bank of Nige­ria said its CEO, Dr. Ades­ola Ad­e­dun­tan, has been hon­oured with membership of Bret­ton Woods Com­mit­tee (BWC).

The Group Head, Mar­ket­ing & Cor­po­rate Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, Fo­lake Ani-Mu­muney, said FirstBank has also joined Bret­ton Woods Com­mit­tee as an Or­gan­i­sa­tional Sup­porter in line with the com­mit­ment to demon­strate co­op­er­a­tion and foster global well-be­ing.

The membership, which is by in­vi­ta­tion only, is in recog­ni­tion of Dr. Ad­e­dun­tan’s ster­ling lead­er­ship qual­i­ties in­clud­ing ef­forts in en­sur­ing that FirstBank re­mains at the fore­front in pro­mot­ing fi­nan­cial in­clu­sion in Africa.

Ac­cord­ing to Bret­ton Woods, “We cham­pion ef­forts to spur eco­nomic growth, al­le­vi­ate poverty, and ad­vance global fi­nan­cial sta­bil­ity. Given your lead­er­ship and back­ground, we be­lieve you would be a valu­able ad­di­tion to the Bret­ton Woods

Com­mit­tee”. Since its found­ing in 1983, mem­bers of BWC in­clude lead­ers at the top of busi­nesses, aca­demic, among oth­ers.

Com­ment­ing, Ad­e­dun­tan said: “On be­half of the board, man­age­ment and staff of FirstBank, I’m deeply hon­oured to be recog­nised as a mem­ber of The Bret­ton Woods Com­mit­tee. In ad­di­tion, as a con­trib­u­tor, FirstBank re­mains com­mit­ted to the goals of the Bret­ton Woods Com­mit­tee.

“I look for­ward to work­ing with other mem­bers of The Bret­ton Woods Com­mit­tee as we con­tinue to build on the suc­cesses achieved over the years. With th­ese, we will make the world a bet­ter place,” he con­cluded.

Dr. Ad­e­dun­tan has since the start of the year re­ceived var­i­ous recog­ni­tions and ap­plauses for his price­less lead­er­ship and role in pro­mot­ing eco­nomic growth across Africa in­clud­ing the Cran­field Alum­nus 2020 award, African Bank­ing Per­son­al­ity of the Year 2019, and very re­cently, the Forbes Best of Africa Award.
