Announcement of management-level appointments

At its most recent Board meeting held in February, ATI’s Board of Directors announced key management staffing decisions to ensure ATI’s business continuity and operational capability:

Recognising the significant achievements of the outgoing Ag. CEO, John Lentaigne

John Lentaigne, who will leave ATI in mid-2020 to relocate to Europe, will continue in his capacity as Acting CEO until the company’s Annual General Meeting (AGM), which is slated to take place mid-July. In its announcement, the Board acknowledged John’s excellent leadership in his role as Acting CEO and, prior to that, as the Chief Underwriting Officer (CUO). Under his leadership, ATI has evolved into a nimble and innovative partner, providing African governments with solutions that have been recognised by institutions such as the IMF as viable options to help governments improve their debt management levels and access to affordable commercial capital.
