The President of the African Development Bank Group, Akinwumi Adesina, on Monday, named Ms. Bajabulile “Swazi” Tshabalala as Acting Senior Vice President of the Bank with immediate effect.

Ms. Tshabalala, currently the Vice President for Finance and Chief Finance Officer for the African Development Bank Group, joined the Bank on August 1, 2018.

She replaces, in acting capacity, Mr. Charles Boamah, the former Senior Vice President of the Bank, who retired on Monday after 23 years of service.

“Ms. Tshabalala has demonstrated highly commendable senior leadership management qualities and brings a strong perspective on results orientation and delivery that will be important as the Bank moves ahead with the delivery of its programs and commitments,” Akinwumi Adesina said in a statement.

“I am very pleased to appoint her to step up into this role as Acting Senior Vice President, as the Bank manages this senior leadership transition, to ensure stability and continuity of our work and operations. I am confident she will do very well. She will continue to hold simultaneously her position as Vice President for Finance and Chief Finance Officer in this interim period”.
