Zenith Bank Ghana has held a thanks-giving service in Accra as part of the celebration of its 10th year anniversary.
Delivering a sermon, Bishop James Saah of the Action Chapel, said the grace of the Almighty God had sustained the Bank and the thanksgiving ceremony was very appropriate.
He urged the leadership of the Bank to hold such programmes every year, adding that it was only God who could save a leader from taking bad decisions.
Mr Daniel Asiedu, the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Zenith Bank, said the decade of successful operations was through the help of God, hence the service to show appreciation.
He said the Bank which started in 2005 with 45 staff, could now boast of 663 highly skilled staff, with 200,000 individual and corporate entities as customers, and 30 business locations nationwide.
He said the Bank had cut the sod for the construction of a new ultra-modern office as its headquarters.
“We have over the years won many local and international awards which is as a result of our excellent performance and it include the prestigious bank of the year award in 2014, and the one also given to us by the Word Finance Magazine,” he said.
Mr Asiedu said the Bank was determined to accomplish more by improving productivity and operational efficiency, adding that it would continue to introduce more innovative products for its cherished customers.
Mrs Chinnery Hesse, Founding Board member of the Bank, commended the staff for working hard to make it a reference point for the provision of flawless and prompt banking services.
She disclosed that the total assets of the bank had grown from 64.7 million Ghana Cedis in 2006 to three billion Ghana Cedis as at the end of 2014, with 4,843 per cent in shareholder growth.
“Our rapid growth is attributable to the strong corporate governance, astute management and formidable employees and customers,” she said.
Mrs Hesse said since good works could never be exhausted, management would not rest on its oars, but would work to entrench its position as one of the leading banks in the country.
As part of the celebration, awards were given to deserving long serving staff of the Bank. GNA
