On Friday 7 July 2017, KBC was awarded the “World’s Best Bank Transformation Award 2017”. Euromoney is one of the leading UK professional magazines in the financial sector, and this global award shows that the redesign and repositioning of KBC is appreciated internationally and is regarded as an important strategic asset. KBC also received the award for “Best Bank Transformation in Western Europe” and “Best Bank in Belgium”.

Johan Thijs, Group CEO of KBC, commented:

“I am extremely proud of this international recognition. The Euromoney Global Awards are a clear appreciation of the hard but successful work of the past years of all our employees. Our business strategy, our culture and our efforts are clearly bearing fruit, which all stakeholders benefit. We have the support of our customers, our shareholders and our employees have become a reference in our core markets and get there now international recognition.”

Daniel Falque, CEO of KBC Belgium, commented:

“Our customers demand solutions accessible banking and insurance to make them easy and allows them to save time. Therefore, we set up on speed, accessibility and reliability of all the channels through which they come into contact with KBC.”

The consistently implemented strategic choices of KBC, the pronounced focus on customer orientation and omni-channel approach, the efficiency of the organisational and financial strength have helped KBC put itself back on the map and by selective acquisitions its core markets, the ambition is there to be among the market leaders.

The Global Awards are therefore both a mark of recognition and trust: recognition of the profound change that KBC went through in recent years, and confidence in the way KBC will handle the technological evolution that a new context creates for bank-insuring.
