Uganda: Standard Chartered Bank Uganda Appoints New Board Chairman

A statement released this morning by Standard Chartered Bank Uganda Ltd says Robin Kibuka has been appointed board chairman for the bank effective today, filling the vacant position that was left behind by the late James Mulwana who passed way recently.

Kibuka is a senior economist with over 20 years of experience at the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and extensive international experience with macroeconomic policy and has provided technical assistance to several countries around the world.

He worked at the Executive Board of the IMF and in several departments of the institution, including the African, Human Resources, Fiscal Affairs, Western Hemisphere, and Statistics. He served as the IMF Resident Representative in Ghana and retired in 2009 as an Advisor in the Statistics Department.

He taught at Harvard and Makerere Universities and worked as a Research Assistant at the Yale Economic Growth Center.

He has several publications to his name in areas such as Statistics, Macro management and Governance.

He has also consulted in the areas of Macroeconomics, Development Policy, and Statistics, most recently with the African Development Bank and the UNDP in designing and later updating a Fiscal Adjustment Roadmap for Swaziland.

He has been approved by the Board of the Private Sector Foundation Uganda to become a member of its Advisory Council.

Kibuka holds a PhD in Economics from Harvard University and a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Yale University.
