The Board of Directors of Commonwealth Business Council (CBC)- an international organisation committed to fostering the business interest of individuals and corporate organisations among commonwealth nations, has announced the appointment of Access Bank’s Group Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede into its Board.
His appointment, according to a statement yesterday, was formally announced at the board meeting of the CBC recently.

Given the extensive work and impact being made by the CBC globally, I look forward to the privileged opportunity the CBC provides to collaborate with other global leaders to advance our common economic interests”.
Aigboje’s appointment, the statement further said, was in recognition of his sterling qualities as one of Africa’s leading business leaders and change agents committed to the socio-economic transformation of the continent.
