Commenting on the appointment, Barclays Africa Group chief executive Maria Ramos said: “I am excited that we were able to appoint someone with such breadth of skills and experience into this role. Her appointment will be instrumental in executing our strategy on the continent.”

With an MBA from Henley Management School and deep experience across many countries in Africa, ms Mizinga brings a wealth of expertise and experience to the role.

The country managing directors of all Barclays Africa’s businesses outside South Africa will report to Ms Mizinga, who will co-ordinate integrated planning and ensure the development of product-led and country-specific strategies, as well as support their execution. In addition, Ms Mizinga will oversee the development of stakeholder relationships with governments, regulators, the Boards and customers in the countries.
Ms Mizinga will report to David Hodnett, deputy chief executive of Barclays Africa Group.
