NBB wins three awards for banking excellence

The National Bank of Bahrain (NBB) has won the International Business Magazine Awards 2021, with honours in three categories, including Best Transformation Bank 2021 in Bahrain, Best Sustainable Bank in Bahrain, and Banking CEO of the Year in Bahrain.

The bank was assessed on its achievements in each category, its overall performance, ongoing strategic initiatives, year-on-year progress, and impact on the environment in which the bank operates.

The three categories won by NBB are a further testament to the bank’s quest for excellence as it sets the benchmark for the financial industry within the kingdom.

NBB received the Best Transformation Bank award to acknowledge its transformation on many levels, including a holistic integration process showcased in the development of centralised resources for both NBB and BisB, streamlining the integration process between the two banks.

The third award saw NBB chief executive Jean-Christophe Durand awarded Banking CEO of the Year after an evaluation based on company performance, contribution to organisational performance, overall leadership qualities and attributes, the esteem in which he is held by his peers, and his ability to foster a culture that aligns with organisational values, aims and overall objectives.

We are pleased with our strong performance and will continue on our path towards becoming the national bank of choice.”
