CEOs’ media visibility is a corporate catalyst that induces positive client and consumer relations.

Analysts at CMA, therefore, encourage banking institutions to evolve CEO’s content auditing matrix to track the visibility of their CEOs as a way of brand penetration strategy.

Ghana Banking CEO Media Coverage Index is a monthly and quarterly assessment designed to ascertain the media coverage of Chief Executives of banking institutions in the country and to evaluate their public visibility and its impact on their respective brands.
