He replaces Stella Okoli on the Bank’s Board of Directors following the latter’s recent retirement in compliance with the Bank’s code of corporate governance which stipulates a retirement age of 70 years for Directors of the Bank.

Managing Director, Guaranty Trust Bank, Segun Agbaje, confirmed Oyinlola’s appointment.

“This is in demonstration of our commitment to the sustenance of good corporate governance and succession planning, we are pleased to have appointed  Oyinlola; a seasoned professional with a proven track record to this position.

All of us at Guaranty Trust Bank wish him the very best in his new position,” Agbaje stated.
