United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc’s Regional CEO for West Africa  Mrs Abiola Bawuah, has been named “Most Outstanding Female in Banking” by ‘Business Executive’ at the just concluded 4th Feminine Ghana Achievement Awards at the La-Palm Royal Beach Hotel, Accra, bringing to eight the number of awards she has received in recent times.

Mrs. Bawuah expressed appreciation over the award and was full of praise for her team, which according to her, has put in a lot of hard work in the past two years, thus bringing the brand and its leadership great recognition and good appeal.

She said, “We have been awarded in several categories and from several organisations and personally, this makes it eight since April last year. All that we have collectively worked towards over the past few years is to consolidate our brand appeal and positioning on the market.

It is opportune to say that we have crafted products in the digital banking space that addresses the everyday challenges of the corporate and individual customer. Very soon, we will be outdooring our Mobile Banking App which is competitive and perhaps superior.”
