Ms Nkrumah, whose appointment took effect from February 2022, will also join the nine-member Access Bank Ghana Board.


A release from the bank announcing the appointment indicated that she brings a wealth of banking experience to the board, with over 23 years’ practice in various capacities in multinational banks, with footprints across different continents.

This, the bank believes, would help it in achieving retail dominance as part of its strategy to becoming the world’s most respected African Bank.

Speaking on the new appointment, the Managing Director of Access Bank Ghana, Mr Olumide Olatunji, expressed optimism about the bank’s prospects.

“Pearl’s appointment is good for our bank. Her rich experience will spur our bank on to achieving retail dominance, a key area of focus to realising our vision of becoming the world’s most respected African bank,” he noted.

Mr Olatunji said her appointment was also an affirmation of Access Bank’s commitment to gender equity and its interest in women initiatives.

Prior to joining Access Bank, Ms Nkrumah was the Head of Main Market and Ecosystems at Stanbic Bank, Ghana.

Under her leadership, the bank recorded outstanding growth and contributed to building the blueprint and structure for inclusive and mass market business.

She is credited with setting up the Youth Banking Desk at Stanbic Bank Ghana, an innovation aimed at increasing youth financial inclusion.

Ms Nkrumah holds a Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Business Administration (Marketing) and a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Ghana.

She also holds a Bachelor of Laws degree (LLB) from the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA).
