Ecobank, a leading pan-African banking group, has won ‘Bank of the Year’ awards in five of its countries of operation.
Ecobank scored the five-trophy haul at The Banker Awards, held in London with the honours going to teams in Cameroon, Guinea Conakry, Gambia, Togo and Uganda.
Judges said teams from the winning countries had made significant progress over the past 12 months; not only in terms of strong financials but by implementing new products and services which have transformed their customer service offering.
Ade Ayeyemi, Ecobank Group CEO, said: “Ecobank is truly honoured to receive these awards. To remain relevant in Africa’s banking world of tomorrow, there is a pressing need for banks to disrupt themselves and transform their operating models.
“Ecobank is embracing these forces for change as we seek to build the most efficient digital banking platform in Africa.
“Over the past year we have worked hard to strengthen our digital service delivery in order to fulfil our promise to connect Africa and reach out to the masses.
“Ecobank’s geographical spread across 33 African countries tells you just how committed we are to the pan-African model.
“The awards demonstrate that we are making progress delivering the bank’s integrated African vision, while continuing to innovate.”
