The change in leadership follows the resignation of Dr. Adesola Adeduntan, who served as the managing director for nine years.

During his tenure, Adeduntan played a pivotal role in overseeing the bank’s operations and strategic direction across three terms.

His departure sets the stage for Alebiosu to take the helm and drive First Bank’s future expansion efforts, particularly at a time when the bank faces increasing competition in the financial sector.

The release stated that, “following the resignation of the managing director/CEO of FirstBank, Dr. Adesola Adeduntan, the Board of Directors has appointed Olusegun Alebiosu as the acting CEO of the 130-year-old institution.
