Part of our growth strategy is the introduction of new skills and proficiency, so we are delighted to share our appointment of the new Head: Alliance Banking, Meagan Rabe (BCOM, LLB, CFP), effective 1 November 2021.

Says Rabe: “I look forward to building on Access Bank’s existing Alliance Banking competence, leveraging off new technologies and open banking frameworks to offer a superior service to our partners and clients in South Africa and across the continent.
“This is an exciting time for Access Bank customers and their clients, as well as our partners.”
Rabe joins Access Bank at a seminal time for Alliance Banking, as we take our robust legacy and experience in this business to scale up capacity to ensure our position as a leader in this important division.
