The ‘Truly Sri Lankan Bank’, Pan Asia Bank was bestowed with two major awards at the recently-held National Business Excellence Awards – the Runner up award in the Banking sector and the Merit award for Corporate Governance.
The much-awaited annual ‘National Business Excellence Awards 2021’ (NBEA) is one of the pioneering awards competitions hosted by the National Chamber of Commerce, which recognises and rewards organisations that have excelled in all-round performance in criteria such as Corporate Governance, Capacity Building, Performance Management, Global and Local Market Reach, Corporate Social Responsibility & Environmental Sustainability, and Business and Financial Results. The winners of these NBEA awards position Sri Lanka as a country with excellently managed organisations, thereby making it attractive for both local and international investors and as a source for products and services, apart from encouraging others to emulate their performance.
Commenting on the double accolade, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Pan Asia Bank Nimal Tillekeratne said, “We are delighted to win Runner up award in the Banking sector and the Merit award in the Corporate Governance category – and that too against the backdrop of pandemic-induced challenges.
Pan Asia Bank has delivered a strong financial performance in 2021 despite the circumstances and has been recognised in the recent past by many local and global reputed institutions for excellence in the Banking sphere.
This new recognition by the National Chamber of Commerce for Pan Asia Bank places us at the forefront of the sector despite being one of the youngest banks while making The Truly Sri Lanka Bank a symbol of business excellence in Sri Lanka.”
