The Board of Directors of Telenor Microfinance Bank has appointed Aslam Hayat as acting CEO, following the resignation of Shahid Mustafa. The outgoing CEO Shahid Mustafa tendered his resignation and will officially step down from his role as CEO on 31 May, 2019.

Aslam Hayat currently serves as Chief Compliance Officer on the Management Team of Telenor Microfinance Bank. He has been with the bank since 2018, prior to which he held various senior positions in Telenor Pakistan, including Vice President Circle Central and Chief Corporate Affairs and Strategy Officer (CCASO).

Before joining the Management Team of Telenor Microfinance Bank, Hayat also served on the bank’s board of directors. “The Board of Directors is pleased to have Aslam Hayat lead Telenor Microfinance Bank while a search for a new CEO commences. We are confident that the direction set by the bank’s management team and the ongoing transformation of the organization will continue uninterrupted under his leadership”, said Petter B. Furberg, Chairman of the Board.

Commenting on his decision to resign as CEO from Telenor Microfinance Bank, Shahid Mustafa said: “It’s been a true pleasure to lead the bank through this critical period in time. I am proud of what the team has achieved including bringing onboard a new strategic investor and strengthening our position within branchless banking.

Following the conclusion of the transaction and the strong progress of the team, I believe this is a good time for me to seek new challenges outside the Bank. I would like to extend my thanks to the board and the team for the trust and good collaboration during my time as CEO”, said Shahid Mustafa.

The Board of Directors has initiated a search for a permanent CEO and will make an announcement at a later point in time.
