STEWARD Bank is once again the official sponsor for the upcoming Zimbabwe Achievers Awards taking place in United Kingdom, United States and Australia, in May, August and November respectively.
The bank was the title sponsor of the awards in 2016.
The awards organisation, which was established in 2010 and is the brainchild of ZAA Chairman Conrad Mwanza, recognises and honours Zimbabweans excelling in various countries.
Mwanza said ZAA’s International Executive Committee were delighted to welcome Steward Bank as an official partner and were looking forward to working with them.
“Steward Bank’s involvement with ZAA-UK, ZAA-Australia and ZAA-US only proves our ongoing commitment to building, engaging and supporting Zimbabwean communities around the world,” said Mwanza.
Mwanza added that the commercial bank’s support for the respective franchises would only strengthen an already growing relationship with the Zimbabwean community on an international spectrum.
Steward Bank launched its Diaspora Banking unit in 2014, and the product range has been growing since then, mainly to accommodate all Zimbabweans living and working in the diaspora. With the slogan ‘Your bank away from home’ the Steward has managed to bring financial solutions to all Zimbabweans in the diaspora.
Bank Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Lance Mambondiani, said he was thrilled with the partnership between the Bank and the ZAA group.
“The Bank`s strong innovative core identifies with the ZAA group. The Bank continues to support commendable initiatives by Zimbabweans, as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility,” he said.
The Zimbabwe Achievers Awards have been a major highlight in the UK, USA, as well as in South Africa, and soon to be in Australia, and it is wonderful to see what the organisation has done over the years in recognising Zimbabweans who are excelling in their various disciplines.
The United Kingdom edition will be held on the 6th of May at the Prestigious Cumberland Hotel in the heart of London.
