Nollie Maoto who is the Chief Data and Analytics Officer of FNB South Africa has just been awarded Finnovex “CDO of The Year” for Southern African Fintech Industry.
Finnovex Awards have been constituted to recognise and appreciate the effort of various individuals, institutions and service providers in the field of financial services. They seek to honour the pioneers and visionaries who have transformed the financial services industry.
I wish I could describe the day that I had yesterday day but honestly I can’t put it into words. But I just wanted to share how my day ended, with me winning the FINNOVEX CDO of the Year 2022 award. And the fact that I was the only woman to win an award in the Southern African financial services industry also speaks volumes. With that being said, I am honestly glad that I was the only woman to receive an award yesterday because I now am taking it upon myself to ensure that I am the last “only woman” in the near future and may this serve as encouragement and an action call to others. Thank you to my phenomenal BI, Data Management and Data Science team at FNB South Africa ConnectMe business unit as this award would not have been possible without all of your amazing work and a great and supportive Exco team. Also a big congratulations to my FNB South Africa colleague, Dr. Mark Nasila for winning the FINNOVEX Innovator of the Year 2022 award. Lord, you are worthy to be praised. Thank you for YOUR grace and hand upon my life.
Says Nollie Maoto.
