A number of IT firms, which supply banks and financial institutions with various products and solutions, were among the organisations honoured during the recent Banker Africa East Africa Awards.
The winners of the corporate Awards were the result of 77,000 votes cast by the financial services community in East Africa, a record number in the four-year history of the Banker Africa East Africa Awards and three times the number of votes cast in the previous year.
The winners were selected by readers of Banker Africa and the online community of financial news website CPI Financial.
Overall, 30 institutions drawn from seven countries – Ethiopia, Kenya, Mauritius, Rwanda, Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda – shared 46 corporate Awards.
“Each year, the Banker Africa East Africa Awards identify and reward excellence in financial services. We aim to promote best practice and offer recognition to the key players working to help create a prosperous diversified future for the region’s economies,” said Robin Amlôt, CEO of CPI Financial. “Winning one of our awards reflects the opinion of the financial services industry across East Africa and our winners may be justly proud of their achievements and also that their peers see them as market-leaders.”
