Oscar Onyema, who on Monday resumed duty as the substantive chief executive officer (CEO) of the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE), has promised to operate an open door policy.
Onyema, who opened the day’s trading activities by ringing the opening bell, in his maiden meeting with the management and staff of the Exchange charged them to rededicate themselves to work in order to build an Exchange that would be a pride of all.
According to him, productivity, hard work, commitment and loyalty to the Exchange would be the hallmark of his administration, promising that in his open-door policy, all suggestions that could move the Exchange forward would be encouraged.
The new NSE CEO was officially introduced to stockbrokers on the trading floor by the interim administrator, Emmanuel Ikazoboh, in company of senior management staff of the Exchange.
He praised the efforts of the interim administration led by Ikazoboh for doing a good job at repositioning the Exchange and laying a solid foundation to build upon. He told the staff that what was left for them was to take the Exchange to the next level.
He promised that productivity, hard work and dedication to duty would be rewarded.
Ikazoboh explained at the short meeting that executive management of the Exchange would be complete when the executive director, listing directorate as well as that of market operations and information technology resume soon.
Onyema joined the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) from the American Stock Exchange where he was a senior vice president and chief administrative officer.
