The African Banker awards recognises and celebrates the achievements of the financial services industry in Africa.
A statement explained that outlining the rationale for selecting GTBank as the winner of the award, the panel of judges noted that the award recognises financial institutions that are industry leaders, consistently reporting strong financial performance and significantly contributing to the quality of service offered by the financial services industry within their country and across the African continent.
Receiving the award on behalf of GTBank, the bank’s Managing Director, GTBank Kenya, Mr Kunle Sonola said: “GTBank is honoured to win this highly coveted award. The award is a testament to the hard work and commitment of the board, management and staff of the bank.
“It is also a challenge and a call to do more to project the global relevance of the African banking industry,” he added.
He also thanked the bank’s customers for their continued trust and support as well as to assure them that the financial institution would continue to strive to deliver beyond stakeholders’ expectations at all times.
Publisher of African Banker Magazine, Mr Omar Ben Yedder, said: “Since we launched the awards we have witnessed the transformation of an industry. There is no room for complacency because there is much room for growth and development to achieve the transformation we all desire and work towards.”
