United Bank S.C has appointed Ato Melaku Kebede as the acting CEO of the Bank effective 12 December 2019, which has now been approved by the National Bank of Ethiopia (NBE).

Ato Melaku Kebede, the master mind behind the setup of the Bank’s competitive edge in technology, has a rich experience in the Ethiopian Banking industry. His outstanding expertise in technology coupled up with his proficiency in business, has also made him the right pick to lead the Bank’s effort in devising its new Strategy 2030 with Deloitte consulting Ltd. Post the development of the strategy, Ato Melaku Kebede was appointed as the Senior Deputy CEO – Strategy & Technology.

Ato Melaku has more than fourteen years of experience in the Banking Industry. He has served United Bank for more than a decade at various capacities as: Senior Deputy CEO – Strategy & Technology (Jan 2019- Dec 2019) and Vice President – Systems & E-Banking (Jun 2012 – Dec 2018) and Manager, IT Department (Jul 2005 – Oct 2008).

In November 2008, after serving United Bank for over 3 years and before being invited back to serve United Bank share company in June 2012, Ato Melaku has served Zemen Bank ( Nov 2008 – 2012) as the V/P Technology. During this period, Ato Melaku has led the Bank’s overall technology project implementation with awards and certificates for his outstanding project management. 

 

United Bank S.C, reputable for being an innovative financial services provider in Ethiopia, has been serving its customers with the utmost care and commitment for more than a couple of decades. Through the dynamism and altering economic conditions our country faced over the years, United Bank maintained a steady financial growth, strictly adhering to the rules and regulation of the National Bank of Ethiopia.    

 

The Mandatory bill purchase policy issued by NBE in 2011, obliged private banks to settle bill payments equivalent to 27% of their loan disbursement. In turn, the policy pressured private banks to increase their lending rates and introduce early settlement penalty fees.

 

In November 2019, the National Bank of Ethiopia announced its lifting of the mandatory bill purchase policy. The NBE’s decision in this regard, creates the leverage for the financial sector to better assist the economy. Private Banks, being relieved from the mandatory bill purchase, will have more loanable fund to meet the economy’s demand for financing with a better scheme or financing structure. This leverage plays a vital role in creating conducive business atmosphere for businesses to grow their financial muscle and generate more foreign currency into the economy. It is also worth mentioning that this development will encourage and attract investments and combat inflation.

 

Following the lifting of the mandatory bill purchase policy United Bank has made the relevant assessments and passed decision to make the necessary amendments.

 

Therefore, we are pleased to announce that our Bank has decided not only to reduce its lending rates but also waive the early settlement penalty. The early settlement penalty waiver will apply to all sectors; while the lending rate reduction may vary from sector to sector depending on the priority level.  The biggest lending rate reduction is made on manufacturing for export sector that goes as high as 4.5%.  This revision shall be enforced effective January 1, 2020.

 

 United Bank is looking forward to serving customers with a wide range of financial options and service excellence.

 

United, We Prosper!
