The Managing Director of Stanbic Bank Ghana, Alhasan Andani, has urged people who have been called to serve on various Boards of organizations to give off their best at all times and not see it as a political appointment.
He revealed that the practice of politicizing issues of national importance always work to the detriment of the nation, adding that the business of government was put on hold for some four months before the 2008 elections and about six months after the elections.
“The government business was put on hold because boards of major institutions were not in place.
The delay by government in constituting the boards of some of these key state institutions had contributed to the slow down of the economy,” he reiterated.
Mr. Andani stressed that governmental institutions should be strengthened and given the necessary guidance so that in times when the politicians were busy securing their future, those institutions would be in the position to run smoothly.
He was however very optimistic that the economy would blossom again now that the boards and other institutions were in place.
Mr. Andani’s comments came at the time when his outfit was launching a new global advertising campaign.
Stanbic Bank, a member of the Standard Bank Group, and Africa’s largest bank, has launched a new advertising campaign that emphasizes on making right connections; with the on-going global campaign fading out the bank’s current tag-line of “Inspired Motivated Involved.”
According to the bank, after working in Africa for the past 150 years, it was now in a position to offer connections to prosperity, wealth creation and the general well being of economies, corporate institutions, individual customers and other stakeholders. Speaking on the new global advertising campaign,
Mr. Andani explained that the group recognizes the changing times and had adjusted to adequately serve the customers and stakeholders.
He disclosed that the new DNA of the bank, “making the right connections” was indicative of the changing seasons and that it required exceptional energy in order to deliver on their promises.
“We got this new DNA through a global-wide survey conducted among all staff of Standard Bank,” he reiterated.
