Mr Kufazvinei is a seasoned banker, having joined FBC Bank Limited in January 1998 as head of finance and administration.

He was later appointed to the board in October 2003, subsequently becoming group finance director in 2004, following the consolidation of the FBC Group.

On June 1, 2011, Mr Kufazvinei was then appointed FBC Group deputy chief executive.

FBC said the new CEO was part of the core team that has been instrumental in the development and execution of corporate strategy over the years and is well-positioned to lead the FBCH team and advance the growth of the brand.

Mr Kufazvinei holds a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Manchester, United Kingdom, and is a seasoned Chartered Accountant (Zimbabwe) with more than three decades of experience.

He is a career banker with over 30 years of banking experience having worked at Standard Chartered bank in various senior capacities.

Dr Mushayavanhu was appointed deputy CEO of FBC Holdings Limited and managing director in 2004.

“The board, management, and staff members thank him for his exceptional leadership over the years and wish him success in his new role,” said FBC.
