Standard Chartered Group has appointed Lamin Manjang, the Uganda managing director as the CEO of Oman in the Middle East effective August 1.

“With more than 7,000 people in Africa, we are proud of the level of expertise and talent we have across the region. We remain committed to ensuring this talent is consistently mentored, developed and exposed to opportunities which assist in broadening the future careers of individuals, so that their skills are not localised, but equip them to be leaders anywhere in the world,” Diana Layfield, the Standard Chartered CEO for Africa, said in a statement.

 “Although we will miss him in Africa, Lamin’s skills and expertise will bring immense value to our business in Oman.

His presence will no doubt enhance the increasing trade and investment links between Oman and Africa.”

Under Lamin’s leadership, Uganda’s profits more than doubled. He will be succeeded by Herman Kasekende, a Ugandan.

Kasekende is the regional head of SME products and solutions business for Africa, based in Kenya.
