Fidelity Bank Plc, one of Nigeria’s leading banks has announced the appointment of Charles Aigbe as Divisional Head, Brand and Communications.According to the bank’s Chief Executive Officer, Nnamdi Okonkwo, the appointment of Charles was part of concerted efforts to realign the communications function of the bank to the strategic vision of being number one in selected markets.

“We welcome him to the Fidelity Bank family. We will work together, leveraging on our combined experiences to actualize all our growth initiatives and grow the Fidelity brand,” said Okonkwo.
