FDH Financial Holdings Limited, a local diversified investments and financial solutions firm, has scored another first for being awarded for outstanding corporate leadership in Africa 2015 by a UK-based publication, Capital Finance International (CFI.co)
The award was offered to the firm’s chief executive officer Thomson Mpinganjira, who has been praised for attaining prominence in the business world by “tirelessly advocating for increased transparency, good governance and scrupulous honesty”.
FDH Financial Holdings Limited mid last year bought 80 percent stake in the formerly wholly-owned Malawi Government bank, Malawi Savings Bank (MSB).
Reads the write-up in the winter edition of the magazine: “He has set leadership example for senior executives to follow throughout Africa.
“People such as Dr Mpinganjira are providing both the entrepreneurial muscle and intellectual wherewithal that fuel the regional boom.”
Reacting to the award, Mpinganjira yesterday said it is humbling that his effort as part of FDH Financial Holdings is being recognised at a global level.
“It pays to do the right things all the time. The values of transparency, good governance and honesty are so crucial in growth of our economy in general and progress of the human race,” he said.
CFI.co judging panel has commended Mpinganjira on his efforts and agrees that corporate governance is singularly important to boosting development throughout Africa.
