SUMMARY

I am currently in branch cluster control, where we visit and review branches on a regular basis – mostly daily, to ensure that they are complying with policy, procedures and controls. The primary objectives include preserving the bank’s assets, preventing frauds, errors and other irregularities. I previously supported FirstBank’s Legal department in the area of managing garnishee order implementation bank wide, and in managing, analyzing and providing information from the bank’s core financial application on legal matters on the request of the legal department. I was also responsible for the daily rendition of twenty-two reports to the branches and selected head office departments on account modifications bank wide, for use in regularizing exceptions where they arose. I have also been effectively involved in the consolidation, validation and analysis of the various reports under other assets control function.

I have a personal vision and the competence to run a Customer Care department. In today’s industry where regulatory oversight is fast introducing standardization and uniformity thus eliminating certain measures of competitive advantage, service governance becomes important to differentiate a brand from its peers, improve brand value and equity, retain customer loyalty and boost market share.
