Tuesday, 26 November, during the "Financial Leaders' Hall of Fame Awards 2013" Gala, CEC Bank was awarded as the "Corporate Bank of the Year". Found at its 13th edition, this Gala organized by Business Arena Magazine rewarded the achievements of top institutions and personalities in the banking, investment, insurance and stock exchange sectors over the last year.
In his thank you speech, Mr. Radu Gratian Ghetea, President of CEC Bank said that during 2012 and 2013 the balance of loans granted by CEC Bank to businesses increased, given the lowering trend recorded in the banking system in the last two years. The award is further evidence that the project of transforming “Casa de Economii si Consemnatiuni” (Savings Bank) into a universal commercial bank, initiated in 2007, was completed through the efforts of over 6000 employees of this bank, who deserve congratulations.
This event brought together numerous personalities from the financial and banking sectors, investment funds, representatives of major companies in Romania, authorities, diplomats and government officials.
