Diamond Trust Bank (DTB) is embarking on a strategic leadership shift to bolster its presence across East Africa. Nasim Devji, the seasoned Group Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of DTB Kenya, will now dedicate her focus on expanding DTB’s reach throughout the region.

To facilitate this regional focus, DTB Kenya will recruit a new Country CEO who will report directly to Ms. Nasim Devji. This CEO will join the existing Country CEOs for DTB Burundi, DTB Tanzania, and DTB Uganda.

This strategic reorganization, approved by the DTB Kenya Board, aims to strengthen the bank’s overall management structure and solidify its position as a leading financial institution in East Africa.

The diamond trust bank management team expressed unwavering confidence in Ms. Nasim Devji’s leadership, acknowledging her invaluable contributions that have guided DTB for over two decades. Her dedication has been instrumental in DTB’s success, including the recent expansion to 90 branches in Kenya alone.

Ms. Nasim Devji is a highly respected leader with a distinguished career, having joined diamond trust bank in 1996. She stands out as one of the few women leading Kenyan commercial banks and holds board positions in numerous DTB subsidiaries and partner institutions.
