Ecobank Transnational Incorporated (ETI) today announced the appointment of Mr. Dan Sackey as Managing Director of its Ghanaian subsidiary, Ecobank Ghana, and Regional Executive for Anglophone West Africa, subject to regulatory approvals.

Mr. Sackey has extensive experience and knowledge of the African banking landscape, having risen through the ranks in the Ecobank Group, which he joined in 1995 as a risk analyst in the corporate banking division of Ecobank Ghana.

In his current role as Managing Director for Ecobank Zimbabwe and Cluster Head for the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) zone, he has been responsible for driving Ecobank’s businesses in Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, Mozambique and Democratic Republic of Congo, in addition to spearheading the expansion of the Ecobank franchise into Angola.

Mr. Sackey’s appointment follows a reorganisation at Ecobank earlier in the year, which created four geographical units: Nigeria with head office in Lagos; Anglophone West Africa with its centre in Accra; French West Africa (the francophone West African Economic and Monetary Union or ‘UEMOA’) based in Abidjan; and Central, Eastern and Southern Africa with its centre in Nairobi.

Dan Sackey’s previous positions include those as Managing Director of Ecobank Rwanda, Deputy Group Risk Manager and Regional Risk Manager. His new appointment takes effect from 1 September 2016. He replaces former Ecobank Ghana Managing Director Samuel Adjei, who was appointed Managing Director of Ecobank Kenya and Group Executive, Central, Eastern and Southern Africa earlier this year.

Dan Sackey holds a Masters in Business Administration with specialisation in International Banking and Finance from the University of Birmingham, United Kingdom and a Bachelor of Science degree in Administration (Accounting Option) from the University of Ghana’s School of Administration.
