Banesco USA announced today it was named Business of the Year by the South Florida Business Journal at its 22nd Annual awards event. This popular and prestigious program has recognized many of today’s top regional organizations and companies
“We are thrilled South Florida Business Journal has recognized Banesco USA with this award, signifying recognition of our innovation, financial stability and customer service,” said Banesco USA CEO, Jorge Salas.
The prestigious Business of the Year award, recognizing Banesco’s success in digital innovation methods and strong ties to the local South Florida community, was collected during the Annual reception dinner at Jungle island in Miami.
“We are extremely proud of the collective efforts of our entire team, which is undoubtedly our biggest asset”, said Salas.
In 2018, the bank demonstrated its ability to service clients and achieve commercial success by focusing on the intersection of digital innovation and human touch – one the most consequential and pressing business challenges of our day. The recent partnership with incubator Plug & Play will provide the bank with faster access to emerging technologies, while their face-to-face contact with clients will benefit from the expansion of its Branch Network to Aventura later in this quarter. Its commercial success is evidenced in 2019’s first quarter results, with double-digit growth in assets, loans and deposits.
“You will be hearing more about Banesco USA as we aim to become South Florida’s most innovative local bank.” Said Salas.
