Ecobank inaugurates $30m Pan-African centre

Ecobank Transnational Incorporated (ETI), the parent company of the Ecobank Group, has inaugurated a multi-­million dollar corporate head­quarters in the Togolese capital, Lome.

The Ecobank Pan African Centre, which was inaugurated by the Togolese President, Faure Essozimna Gnassingbe, was built at a cost of nearly $30 million.

Mr. Gnassingbe said in his inaugural address that the site was a concrete manifestation of pro­duction and trade globalization. That, he said, was another lesson that Ecobank had demonstrated­ that it was standing tall among its peers.

According to the Togolese President, Ecobank is a model in the landscape of universal bank­ing architecture that is charac­terised by growth, which had pro­gressed year on year.

The Ecobank Pan African Centre is set on a 42,180 square metres plot on the Boulevard du Mono Street, Togo’s main arterial road. It is a seven-storey building with a total floor space of 5,000 square metres and provides one of the most modern office environments in the region.

It has a 480-seat conference auditorium built to international standards and incorporating the latest technology.

The Chairman of Ecobank Transnational, Mr Kolapo Law­son, said Ecobank had over time grown from a fledgling to a suc­cessful multinational bank.

The newly constructed centre has a training facility that is focused on the development of senior and middle management with a faculty and curriculum based on international best standards.
