FBNBank Ghana has officially joined the 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, now in its 19th year, ranked FBNBank 55e among the top 100 companies in Ghana due to their contribution to the economy.
The rankings were based on a rigorous selection exercise and on the company’s size, growth and social responsibility efforts. This year’s edition was organized under the theme “Ghana’s private sector, a catalyst for post-pandemic economic transformation” and was held at the Kempinski Hotel in Accra.
Speaking at the ceremony, Mr. Yoofi Grant, Managing Director of GIPC, said that “The companies celebrated tonight were selected after undergoing a rigorous selection exercise and were ranked based on their performance. I congratulate the private sector for being very successful in their investments and support in saving the Ghanaian economy amidst the global COVID-19 pandemic and the Russian-Ukrainian war.
The Ghana Club 100 was introduced by the Ghana Investment Promotion Center (GIPC) in 1998 and features an annual collection of 100 outstanding companies in the Ghanaian business landscape. The main objective of the Ghana Club 100 is to promote good corporate governance among Ghanaian companies, to develop a transparent and smooth communication system in the Ghanaian corporate sector and to stimulate positive economic entities.
According to Mr. Victor Yaw Asante, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of FBNBank, “Over the years, we have remained focused on prioritizing our stakeholders, and that includes our customers and the general Ghanaian population. We have ensured that our program through it all remains aligned with Ghana’s aspirations. Our commitment was also possible largely thanks to the passion of our employees. Bank staff have contributed over the years to our endeavors in business and community 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 the progress our brand has made over the past 26 years we have been in the country. We are pleased with this recognition and look forward to improving our contribution to the socio-economic development of Ghana, even as we are keen to build for the future by supporting the youth.
Mr. Francis Nyamekye, Compliance Officer who received the award on behalf of the Bank, said, “The bank is delighted with the recognition from the GIPC and this award is dedicated to all our bank staff for their hard work. I am confident that this award will inspire us to climb the Ghana Club 100 rankings. Our contributions in terms of the solutions we provide to our clients and customers and the initiatives we support in the communities are a strong indication of how far we are ready to go in order to contribute significantly to the development of Ghana. I can assure you that we remain ready to take action.
