Central Bank of Seychelles Governor, Caroline Abel, was named this year’s Central Bank Governor of the Year by the African Banker Awards Committee.
The African Banker Awards are considered the Oscars of the African banking community and given the impartial selection and judging process are the most respected in the field. The 2020 awards were announced in a virtual ceremony and when accepting the award, Ms and Abel said she felt humbled and deeply honoured to receive such a recognition.
She noted that it does not only highlight the achievements of her role as governor but also shines a spotlight on the work of the Central Bank of Seychelles (CBS), which like other central banks has had to adapt to several challenges over the years, including the current Covid-19 pandemic.
The African Banker Awards is organised by the African Banker magazine, under the patronage of the African Development Bank Group and are presented in various categories, which the organisers say are aimed at honouring the achievements of individuals and institutions who have contributed significantly to the reform, modernisation and expansion of the banking and financial sector across the African continent.
