Standard Chartered Zambia PLC Chief Executive Officer, Mizinga Melu was awarded the CEO of the Year Award during the ZICA 2012 Annual Gala Dinner by the Deputy Minister of Finance Hon. Miles Sampa at the Hotel Inter-Continental in Lusaka on Friday, 7th December, 2012. The award was in recognition of her visionary and outstanding leadership to the Bank.
Mrs. Melu leads a Bank that has been recognised for its leadership in financial performance and delivery of high quality innovative products and services.
Standard Chartered has in the recent past received the Bank of the Year Award in light of its strong international presence, and the breadth of projects that it has undertaken to broaden its product offering and service quality.
With over 106 years of on-the-ground presence and expertise, Standard Chartered Bank consistently delivers convenient and innovative banking products and services to clients operating in Zambia. Pioneering services, such as Priority Banking, and award-winning channel technologies, like Internet Banking, have strengthened the Bank’s franchise considerably in Zambia’s increasingly competitive environment in 2012.
Standard Chartered continues to make a difference in the community. As part of its US$1 million “Seeing is Believing” eye-care programme in North Western Zambia as well as another US$1 million eye-care programme in Southern Zambia, the Bank has also refurbished Choma and Monze Hospital Eye Units and donated cataract kits, eye microscopes and a bipolar cautery.
Standard Chartered Bank is integral to the development of Zambia as demonstrated by our continued position as the lead bank in the retail, agriculture and mining sectors. Mrs Melu stated “We are proud of the standards we have set, and we say a big thank you to our customers for their loyalty and continued support. We could not have done this without them.”
