GCB Bank Ltd. has been voted Financial Business of the Decade at the Millennium Excellence Awards programme held on the courtyard of the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi at the weekend.
The much-coveted and distinguished prize was presented to the bank’s Managing Director, Mr. Kofi Adomakoh, in the presence of President Nana Akufo-Addo and the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei-Tutu II.
The ceremony, held at the weekend, hosted nominees from diverse backgrounds in academia, business, agriculture, tourism & culture, government, the media, music and entertainment, education and sports.
The Millennium Excellence Foundation through its most prestigious award in Ghana has for 20 years been a longstanding and credible campaigner for rewarding the most distinguished personalities and institutions alike. These prestigious awards are reserved for individuals and organisations with the highest positive impact on humanity, and enhancing the wellbeing of their community or nation while undertaking their respective pursuits.
Saturday evening, in resplendent and colorful style, was exemplified by the display of royalty and statesmanship as well as world-class entertainment.
Receiving the award for the bank, M.D. Kofi Adomakoh; D.M.D. Emmanuel Odartey Lamptey; and Head-Corporate Affairs, Emmanuel Kojo Kwarteng, dashingly took to the stage and ‘brought home the win’.
GCB, with the tagline ‘Your bank for life’, has for the most part of the decade been a financial, socio-economic and socially responsible development partner across the country. And this is to sustain the fact that GCB Bank has made profitable inroads and given shared value to all of our stakeholders on a year on year basis since the inception of this millennium.
The M.D. said: “Through the sustainable business model of providing cutting-edge financial services and credible business practices, GCB Bank Ltd. has been duly recognised as the Financial Business of the Decade. This feat couldn’t have been achieved without you; you as our prized asset, as the bank’s customer and largest stakeholder.
“Thank you for sharing in this wonderful achievement and for being a best part of our success story,” M.D Kofi Adomakoh finished thankfully.
Other patrons of the award ceremony included the National Chief Imam, Sheikh Nuhu Shaributu, celebrated businessmen and women, and senior members of the clergy.
