The management of Ecobank Transnational Incorporated on Tuesday effected a major change in their management hierarchy with the replacement of the erstwhile Managing Director/CEO, Mr. Thierry Tanoh with Mr. Albert Essien.
This shake up at the very top was necessitated because of the on going scandal bordering on issues of governance that the bank has been embroiled in for sometime now.
The sack(departure/resignation) of Mr. Thierry Tanor takes effect from Tuesday, March 12, 2014. He became the MD of the bank in October of 2012, spending nearly 2 years on the saddle as the GMD.
The new helmsman, Albert Essien before now, was formerly the bank’s Deputy CEO/Group Executive Director Corporate & Investment Banking.
