Ecobank drew thunderous applause as it was called up to receive one award after another throughout the night.

The event took place in the Grand Ballroom of London’s Dorchester Hotel and brought together representatives of banks and leading financial institutions from over 130 countries.

The pan-African bank won a total of ten country awards, more than any other bank among the many that gathered for what is considered to be one of the most prestigious events within the global banking industry.

The Banker Magazine is a publication of the Financial Times of London.

Ecobank won the awards in recognition for their banking services in the following countries: Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Cote d’Ivoire, Liberia, Mali, Niger, Senegal and Togo. Representing the bank at the awards were Mrs. Morenike Adepoju, Managing Director of Ecobank Liberia, Mr. Roger Dah-Achinanon, Managing Director of Ecobank Togo and Mr. Richard Uku, Brand & Communication Director for the Ecobank Group.

“It is gratifying to be honored in such a resounding way.” Uku said. “These 10 awards are a testament to the passion of all Ecobankers in the 25 countries in Africa where we currently operate. They underscore our dedication to keep providing world class banking services to the millions who have made Ecobank their bank of choice.”

The bank is currently undergoing a rebranding exercise and will roll out a new corporate logo and look in January 2009, reflecting renewed dynamism and continued commitment to Africa.
