Absa Bank has won “Bank of the Year” for the second time in a row at the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIMG) awards, which was recently held in Ghana’s capital, Accra, and themed “Creative Marketing and Innovation in a Volatile Global Economy”.

Their recognition follows a strong performance in 2021, which ultimately resulted in a record-breaking 1.1 billion in profit before tax and 1.6 billion in revenue.

“There is absolutely no way this would have been possible without the relentless work ethic and commitment of our colleagues, management team, our board and all other stakeholders. Acknowledgments like these encourage us to do more in providing financial solutions for our customers and clients. They are the reason we are in business, “said the Managing Director, Abena Osei-Poku.

The managing director of ABSA Bank, Abena Osei-Poku also won the “Marketing Woman of the Year” award.
