HNB triumphs at Euromoney, Asian Banker Awards

HNB PLC recently brought home a trio of high profile awards including being declared the “Best Bank in Sri Lanka for 2019” for the third time by Euromoney.

HNB was also presented with the award for “Best Managed Bank in Sri Lanka” by The Asian Banker while HNB Managing Director/CEO JonathanAlles was also conferred with the CEO Leadership Achievement Award at the same event.

The Asian Banker CEO Leadership Achievement Award and Best Managed Bank Award carry particular significance, given that both awards are only given out every three years, while the Euromoney Best Bank Award remains among the most coveted prizes presented only to those at the very pinnacle of the industry.

“It is a true honour for HNB to have received such resounding acclaim on such a prestigious global platform. I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to the entire Hatna family for their unwavering commitment and support in executing our vision of a digitally vibrant, customer-centric, future-ready bank. Our emergence at the forefront of the Sri Lankan banking industry speaks to the underlying strength of our vision to create a new paradigm in banking for our nation, and we look forward to even greater transformation in the years to come,” HNB Managing Director/CEO Jonathan Alles stated.

Notably, the personal award conferred upon Alles was in recognition of numerous achievements and milestones achieved by HNB during the period from January 2016 to December 2018 – the timeframe just following the unveiling the ambitious HNB Vision 2020.
