Indeed accolades have become synonymous with the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Fidelity Bank, Nnamdi Okonkwo.

Over the years, the banker extraordinaire has been celebrated on countless occasions.

Mostly celebrated for his banking exploits that changed his financial institution, Okonkwo among his colleagues is synonymous with King Midas.

He was one of the personalities celebrated at the BusinessDay Banks and Other Financial Institutions (BAFI) Awards held recently at the Lagos Continental Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos.

The bubbly man was honored as the banking sector CEO of the Decade for transforming Fidelity Bank into one of the fastest-growing and most trusted financial services brands in Nigeria.

Other highpoints of the encomiums showered on him at the event includes increasing youth appeal to the bank, revamping its performance management culture to instill a culture of performance; technology refresh and digital transformation in furtherance of the digital retail strategy he implemented.

This award comes days to Okonkwo taking a bow from the financial institution whose affairs he has led for years, as he will cease to be the bank’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), on December 31.
