Frank Adu Junior, former Chief Executive Officer of Calbank, has expressed his profound gratitude to staff and clients of the institution for their contribution to the success chalked during his tenure.

Appreciating the assistance received, the retired CEO acknowledged his colleagues for their immense contribution and support which he indicated kept him sailing through even in the toughest of moments.

The 2018 Banking Sector CEO of the Year was also grateful to God for His grace upon him through thick and thin in his 30 years as a banker, 20 of which he spent in overseeing the operations of Calbank.

He was responding to a congratulatory message from Ernest De-Graft Egyir, a CEO, Founder and Consultant on LinkedIn.

Portions of Mr Egyir’s message read: “Congratulations On Your Retirement Chief Frank Adu Jnr!

“We wish you smooth sailing on your new adventure with much respect and gratitude.Your retirement is truly deserved with a job well done. All good things come to an end.

“So is true for the marvelous and memorable contributions you made to the company and the banking industry. Wishing you a triumphant, delightful and wonderful retired life ahead!”

In his response the award-winning CEO said: “A time to look back with admiration…

“A time to look forward with anticipation. It’s been a whirlwind 30 years. 20 of those years as CEO of Calbank. A bank I’m very proud of.

“I thank all of you for your very encouraging and warm comments and words. I will forever give thanks to God Almighty and all my giant colleagues who carried me on their shoulders through this journey of mine. The next journey awaits. Bless.”

Frank Adu Junior officially retired as the CEO of Calbank on Tuesday, December 31 last year after about 20 years of serving in the capacity.

He was made the treasurer of the bank in 1994, became the Deputy MD in 1999 before eventually becoming the MD in the year 2000.

He is recognised as a great game changer as his tenure as CEO of the Bank saw a drastic transformation in the bank’s operation.

It was under the supervision of Mr Adu that the bank grew from a small corporate-focused bank with three branches to a universal bank with 28 branches, employing about 850 workers.

He has been succeeded by the Executive Director and Chief Financial Officer of CAL Bank, Philip Owiredu.
