Introduction to Our People

At FMO, our people are our most valuable asset. Characterized by an entrepreneurial spirit and sense of personal involvement in the success of our business, FMO employees are highly committed to the bank’s vision and mission.

The last year was a busy one for Human Resources, as we implemented a new management development program, opened a joint office with DEG in Johannesburg and worked on recruitment to support our expansion plans for the upcoming strategic period.

We helped employees of our former Housing department to transition into new positions, following the decision to discontinue Housing as a focus sector. The staff affected by this change have all succeeded in taking on new positions at FMO.
