During the general assembly that was held last week, the Association elected Abe Sano, President of Oromia International Bank (OIB), as its vice president, replacing Bekalu Zeleke, president of the Commercial Bank of Ethiopia (CBE).
EBA also elected presidents of CBE, Awash, OIB, Dashen, United, Nib, Debub, Zemen, Berhan, Anbessa, Addis and Abyssinia as members of the board of directors.
Addisu Habba, married and a father of two, is an economics graduate of Addis Abeba University (AAU) and obtained his Master's degree in Banking and Finance from Italy. Before joining Debub Global Bank three years ago, he served as the president of Bank of Abyssinia (BoA) for five years.
He has also served in several positions at the Construction & Business Bank (CBB), including as a credit clerk and an internal auditor, before rising to the post of President.
