The Managing Director (MD) of Prudential Bank, Mr. Bernard Appiah Gyebi, has paid a courtesy call on The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II at the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi. The purpose of the visit was to formally introduce himself to the King as the new MD of the Bank.
Mr. Gyebi, who was delighted to meet the Asantehene, expressed his profound gratitude to Asanteman for supporting the business of the Bank in the Ashanti Region. He thanked the King for the valuable advice he had been giving to the Management of the Bank since its inception and informed Otumfuo that the success of the Bank could not have been possible without the prayers, support, and patronage of Asanteman. He assured the Asantehene that Prudential Bank’s performance would soar during his tenure as the MD and he would always count on him for his rich advice.
The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, commended Prudential Bank for its continuous support of businesses and the economy in general. He urged the new Managing Director to build on the solid foundation laid by his predecessors who worked so hard to nurture the Bank.
He also advised him to bring further innovation into the Bank’s operations, particularly, considering the Domestic Debt Exchange Programme, which had affected the financial sector. He underscored the need for the MD to embark on a deposit mobilization drive to enable the Bank to support businesses, especially Small and Medium-Size Enterprises. The Asantehene also used the opportunity to call for closer collaboration between commercial banks and the Bank of Ghana (BoG) to change the face of the banking industry. That, he said, was crucial in the country’s determination to accelerate the pace of finding a lasting solution to the current economic challenges.
The Managing Director was accompanied by Mr. Daniel Kissiedu, Board Member, Mr. Thomas Broni, Executive Head, Operations, Mr. Ebow Quayson, Executive Head, Business, Mrs. Akosua Boahen, Head, Marketing and Corporate Affairs, Mr. Thomas Dwomoh-Ameyaw, Ag. Regional Manager, and Mrs. Naomi Adjei-Twum, Marketing Manager-Kumasi.
