Mr. Fokuo is a risk expert with over 15years in Bank Risk Management.


Until now he was the Deputy Managing Director of National Investment Bank Ghana PLC (NIB); having joined the Bank since 2019. 


At NIB, he has been instrumental in the turn-around journey of the bank and has been specifically in-charge of the Risk Management and Operations of the Bank. 


Joining NIB in 2019 was timely as the bank needed the full implementation of its Enterprise Risk Model (ERM) to kickstart its transformational journey. Execution of the ERM Model and the introduction of best practice in governance have created the necessary controlled environment required for sound banking. 


Again, Mr. Fokuo has revamped the Bank’s Operations to ensure resilience and application of standard guidelines across the bank for rigour and efficiency.  


Prior to joining National Investment Bank, Mr. Fokuo was appointed as the Head of Credit Risk of First National Bank; a subsidiary of FirstRand Bank Group of South Africa.


Between 2008 and 2016, Mr. Fokuo worked with Barclays Bank Ghana (now ABSA) where he rose through the ranks becoming a Senior Risk Control Manager and Country Risk Champion.


Mr. Fokuo is the current Board Chairman of Nexans Ghana Limited, and a Board member at State Housing Company Limited.


He holds a BSc. Degree in Natural Resources Management from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST); an MBA in Finance from the University of Wales, UK; and an Advanced Commercial Risk Certificate from the IFS School of Finance, UK.
