KCB Group wins bank of the year honours

KCB Group posted a pre-tax profit of Kshs. 22.4 billion in the third quarter ending September 30th, 2017 a growth of 3.1% against the same period last year

The bank which recently made headlines after its Thika Road branch was robbed out of 50 million shillings was honored at the global awards for its sustainable growth and its efforts in ensuring financial inclusion for all.

The awards are organized by The Banker – a UK based economic and financial intelligence publication.

“As a Bank we are delighted to be recognized for the work that we are doing in pushing for the sustainability agenda and financial inclusion. This award is not only an affirmation that we are on the right path but it also poses a challenge for us to keep doing more not just in Kenya but across the East African region,” KCB Group CEO and MD Joshua Oigara said while commenting on the global Award.

The Bank also won an award from the Financial Times award for being the Best Bank in Kenya as well as another award from the Public Relations Society of Kenya during an event held last month – for the Best Corporate Publication of the year.

“These awards are a recognition of our commitment to delivering excellence to our customers. We will continue to innovate and build a trusted and financially strong bank which will remain at the forefront to find new ways to secure the financial future of our customers in this fast-changing world,” said Oigara.

Oigara has been at the helm of KCB Group since 2013, and has been instrumental in steering the East Africa’s biggest bank with an asset base of Kshs. 643.8 billion.
