Brent Mortgage Bank Limited, a major primary mortgage bank (PMB), has announced the formal appointment of new board and management team members.

Mr. Adeniyi Bilesanmi, the bank’s Executive Director, Business Development and Corporate Services, made the announcement in a statement issued from the bank’s headquarters in Lagos on Sunday.

“Dr. Oluseye Awojobi, a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Bankers (FCIB), was appointed Board Chairman, effective August 2023.”

“He was the Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria’s (CIBN) immediate-past Registrar/Chief Executive Officer (CEO),” he stated.

Bilesanmi, a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants (FCA), also announced the appointment of Mrs Adeola Simon, Honorary Chartered Institute of Bankers (HCIB), as the new Managing Director/CEO.
Mrs Adeola Simon is the new Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Brent Mortgage Bank Ltd.
“She had previously served as the bank’s Executive Director (ED) in charge of Credit and Enterprise Risk Management and had been acting in that capacity since January.”

Mrs. Folashade Onyia (FCA), Mr. Bola Aruna (FCA), and Mrs. Eniola Obe (HCIB) were also appointed to the board as non-executive directors in September, he said.

“They join two other non-executive directors on the board, Mr. Lanre Obisesan (FCIB) and Alhaji Bola Oyebamiji (FCIB),” Bilesanmi stated.

The appointments, according to the Executive Director, follow the successful completion of the tenures of the bank’s former Board Chairman, MD/CEO, and three non-executive directors.

“It is envisaged that their different experiences would contribute to Brent Mortgage Bank Limited’s positive steps, tremendous growth, and achievements,” he said.

Mr. Bilesanmi went on to say that the appointments were made in accordance with the Central Bank of Nigeria’s (CBN) criteria, which call for a maximum of 12 years on the Board of Directors.
“These new appointments will also assist to reposition the bank for future challenges and growth,” he added.
