Atedo Peterside has retired from the board of Standard Bank Group Limited, South Africa  after serving for 35 years.

“Today was the Annual General Meeting of Standard Bank Group Limited and I opted not to be re-elected as a Director. The retirement age is actually 70, but I believe 35 years is enough & the succession plans have worked well,” Peterside announced on twitter.

It then changed its name to IBTC Chartered Bank Plc.

On 24 September 2007, IBTC Chartered Bank Plc merged with Stanbic Bank Nigeria Limited to form Stanbic IBTC Bank Plc, and he was elected Chairman of Stanbic IBTC Bank in October 2007.

Peterside was Group Chairman of Stanbic IBTC Holdings Plc from August 2012. Having overseen a number of regulatory matters through to completion, he announced his resignation March 31, 2017.
