The recently concluded Vanguard Personality of the Year Awards which was held some days back indeed brought smiles and hopes on the faces of both the recipients of the awards and guests who were present.
Vanguard has tried at maintaining a strong standard when it comes to selecting those who truly deserves the awards and unlike some awards, they have so far escaped the axes of criticism as they have not been biased.
One of the personalities who walked home with an award was the CEO, Union Bank Nigeria, Emeka Emuwa, who won the Vanguard ‘Bank CEO of the Year’ as he was represented by Executive Director, Corporate Banking, Union Bank Nigeria, Emeka Okonkwo.
Mr. Emeka Emuwa was appointed to the board of Union Bank as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Group Managing Director in November 2012.
He joined Union Bank after 25 years at Citibank where he rose through the ranks from Management Associate in 1986 to Managing Director, Citibank Nigeria Ltd, and Citi Country Officer, Nigeria.
