Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square, London (16th September 2011) - Mr Anwar Zaidi, CEO of HBL UK, while receiving the award stated:
"On behalf of my colleagues at Habib Bank UK, I'm thrilled to receive the award for Management Excellence.
Habib Bank was formed even before the formation of Pakistan and over the years, through the dedicated efforts of many employees, it is today not just the largest private sector bank in Pakistan but is represented in 24 countries worldwide.
In the UK, we are present in all the major cities. Apart from the commercial banking services that we provide to the Pakistani diaspora, we offer a free service called "eRemit" for home remittances through an internet portal. I encourage you all to use it next time you want to send money home to your family and friends in Pakistan.
My sincere thanks to the team at Pakistan Achievement Awards, especially the panel of illustrious judges, for giving us this distinct honour. We are here for the community and greatly value their trust in our services."
