Heritage Of Performanace

The story of the spirit of Heritage Bank varies in a positive way just as the conclusion by a vast majority of its customers and those in the financial and business sector is one that not only keeps evolving but is getting better and more pragmatic.

Two years on, the words at the maiden edition of the Investors Forum in Lagos, still rings rich and deep: “We have a story, how we started and where we are going. All that defines us! Whatever our purpose, we all desire to succeed; we all desire to leave a legacy of success. Welcome to history in the making.”

When Heritage Bank Ltd took over the ownership of Enterprise Bank from the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria, AMCON, in 2014 it was a strategic move embedded in the bank’s policy of broadening its base to bring in more Nigerians to benefit from its pool of exciting services.

In two years and despite the harsh economic environment, the bank has continued to stay the course due, mainly, to the managerial direction of the Managing Director/ Chief Executive Officer, Mr Ifie Sekibo, and the management team. If anyone were to be in doubt as to the long term objective of Heritage Bank, those fears were doused when he was named as Banker of the Year for 2015 by Nigeria’s longest running newspaper, Daily Times.

Explaining the award to Sekibo, Daily Times said, He is a tenacious entrepreneur, passionate game changer and a result-oriented professional with a proven track record in turn-around management. These attributes consistently drive his vision to lead tenacious teams which mobilize strategic investments and capital injection to resuscitate and restructure moribund companies to the path of sustained profitability.
