When dfcu bank appointed Charles Mudiwa as the Managing Director last month, many immediately took note of his impressive CV after it was published online.

For a man with 26 years of banking experience and one who got the grades in those Ivy-league universities and business colleges, many could only whisper about his accomplishments.

On Wednesday evening, many put a face and a voice to the impressive CV. Dfcu threw a cocktail party to officially welcome Mudiwa and offer him an opportunity to interact with some of the bank’s esteemed customers and show some gratitude. 

   Dfcu’s Executive Director, William Ssekabembe might have extolled Mudiwa’s virtues, calling him a man with a niche in turning around businesses and profitability, but to those in attendance, Mudiwa has a laid-back demeanour and tons of humour.

Many, including State Minister for Foreign Affairs, Okello laughed hard when he reminded them to drink all the exclusive whiskeys on offer without worrying that their bank statements would slightly be tampered with the following day.  He was adamant very few banks offer drinks with no charge.

As his Impressive CV was read earlier on, Mudiwa must have taken note of the pronged glances made towards him especially by some females in attendance.

As a way of introduction, he made it clear that he is a very committed husband and father and has one wife!

To the bank’s clients, he was reassuring through a metaphor.  “If you think you are too small to make a difference, you have never spent a night with a mosquito buzzing in your ear,”
