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.
Successful businesses are driven by more than strong performance and bottom-line results. If this year’s Business of the Year honorees are any indication, “family” plays a significant role in organizational success.
It’s not surprising. Researchers note people spend as much – or more – time at work than at any other single activity, other than sleeping.
Many of the 2019 honorees spoke to the importance of having a collegial, family-like bond across the C-Suite. They work, strategize paths and celebrate wins together. Many break bread, travel or just spend time together, whether as a regular occurrence or as a bonding event across the organization.
Banesco USA has been named a finalist for the 2019 Business of the year Award by South Florida Business Journal. This prestigious award has recognized many of today’s top regional organizations, so we are proud to participate in the annual 22nd Business of the Year award program.
