FBNBank Ghana has officially joined Ghana Club 100, the coveted league of Ghana’s top 100 companies, for the first time. This year’s edition of the Ghana Club 100 ranking, which is in its 19th year, had FBNBank ranked 55th out of the top 100 companies in Ghana due to its contribution to the economy.
The rankings were based on a rigorous screening exercise and based on the company’s size, growth and Corporate Social Responsibility efforts. This year’s edition was organised under the theme ‘Ghana’s Private Sector, a Catalyst for Post-Pandemic Economic Transformation’.
Speaking during the ceremony, Mr. Yoofi Grant, Chief Executive Officer of GIPC said: “The companies celebrated this evening were selected after they had gone through a rigorous screening exercise and were ranked according to their performance. I commend the private sector for doing very well with its investment and support in saving the Ghanaian economy amid the global COVID-19 pandemic and Russian-Ukraine war”.
Ghana Club 100 was introduced by the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC) in 1998 and features an annual collection of the 100 outstanding companies in Ghana’s business landscape. The main objective of Ghana Club 100 is to promote good corporate governance among Ghanaian businesses, develop a transparent and fluid communication system in the Ghanaian corporate sector, and spur positive economic entities.
According to Mr. Victor Yaw Asante, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of FBNBank: “We have over the years remained focused on putting our stakeholders first, and this includes our customers and the Ghanaian population generally. We have ensured that our agenda through all these remains aligned with the aspirations of Ghana. Our commitment has also been possible largely because of our people’s passion.
“The bank’s staff have over the years contributed to our efforts in business and community related activities, and I personally believe that this feat of being counted among Ghana’s top 100 companies would not have been possible without them. It is also an indication of how much progress our brand has made over the past 26 years we have been in the country. We are happy for the recognition, and we look forward to improving our contribution to Ghana’s socio-economic development as much as we are keen to build for the future by supporting the youth.”
Mr. Francis Nyamekye, Head of Compliance who received the award on behalf of the bank said: “The bank is delighted with recognition from the GIPC, and this award is dedicated to all staff of our bank for their hard work.
I am very confident this award will spur us on to climb up the Ghana Club 100 league table. Our contributions in terms of the solutions we offer our customers and clients, and the initiatives we support in local communities, are a strong indication of how far we are prepared to go in order to contribute significantly in Ghana’s development. I can assure you that we remain primed for action”.
