Orry Seem Achievements
One of her greatest achievements is working on a single unified mobile banking app to serve 33 markets across Africa.
Most of the Ecobank markets had unique market apps making the pan-African offering inefficient. Additionally, she actively works with key partners on marketing campaigns to drive sales for different products (remittances, airtime, virtual cards) and services (payments via QR).
This project brought about the most desired results for the brand, tripling the customer base. To date, Ecobank is the only bank that can offer a unified mobile banking experience and one-of-a-kind products and services in several of its markets.
The partnerships formed through her project, which reaches over 1 million transacting customers, have become critical in supporting a financial inclusion drive in the West Africa region as well as across the Continent in markets where Ecobank operates.
Meanwhile, Orry Seem supports regulator engagements on product development and approval, roll out and monitoring for effective and efficient service delivery to clients.
Over the past five years, Orry Seem has been involved in supporting young girls who have dropped out of school due to pregnancies and early marriages. The young ladies are supported through mentoring and coaching and in some cases legal or law enforcement support to get them back in school.
