Friday, 16 June 2017, Makola- Premium Bank officially inaugurated a branch in Makola in Accra, available to perform banking services the public.

The new branch is located on the ground floor of the Methodist Bookshop Building, Makola. This new branch joins two other branches: one stationed in Accra (Ground Floor, Shippers House, Ridge) and the other branch in Takoradi (Windy Ridge), thus totaling the number of branches to three.

A brief thanksgiving service was conducted to celebrate the branch opening. Commissioning the branch, Mr. Kwasi Tumi; the Managing Director of Premium Bank addressed the Makola staff to deliver distinctive service to all their customers. “It is not for nothing that our tagline is ‘You’re better off with us.’ That simply means we go the extra mile to ensure our customers are comfortable and they get the kind of service that they deserve from us. Your duty is to reach out to them and satisfy their needs. If we do not that, our tagline ‘you’re better off with us ‘will not mean anything.”

Mr. Tumi added that the staff should instill the values of teamwork in the branch stating that it is support for each other that will bring about success.

Dignitaries at the commissioning included Mrs. Judith Awuah-Darko, Rev. Tse Amable, Father Daniel Tettedjie and Pastor Amissah as well as the Heads of Department and Board of Directors.

After the service, the streets were brightly marked with colors of Premium Bank as staff members flooded the streets, interacting with the locals in the community to create awareness of the bank’s arrival in Makola with music blaring from trucks, announcing the launch of the new branch.

 

 

 

Ashesi BizExhibit inline3

May 20, 2017, Accra – The Business Department of Ashesi University held the maiden edition of the Ashesi Business Exhibition at the Impact Hub, Osu.

The event, organized by the Ashesi Design Lab, in partnership with Premium Bank, Innohub, Growth Mosaic and Impact Hub, forms part of the department's efforts to provide opportunities for students and alumni startups to familiarize themselves with the general entrepreneurial market in Ghana.

Anthony Ebo Spio, the Head of the Business Administration Department in Ashesi explained students are given training and exposure in the area of entrepreneurship in order to encourage them to create jobs for the youth and address unemployment in Africa once they leave Ashesi. “The whole idea is that when young people leave Ashesi, instead of them becoming a part of job market, they will be the people creating the jobs. Through exhibitions like this, and Ashesi's mission to train entrepreneurs, we hope we can contribute to addressing the unemployment problem in Africa,” he said.

Dr. Sena Agyepong, also of the Business Administration Department added, “Our goal is that one out of every five Ashesi graduates starts a business, and every year we have ventures coming out of the entrepreneurship class, including ones that students are running themselves,” “However, when they graduate it is necessary that they are able to sustain these businesses. So the exhibition was born out of the need to expose them to the general entrepreneurial ecosystem, investors, accelerators, and incubators mainly, so the experts can guide them through investment and guidance.”

Nine business startups pitched their ventures, as well as interacted with 70 industry experts, professionals and entrepreneurs who attended the event. The exhibition also provided the students and alumni the opportunity to build networks with potential clients, partners and business investors. Some of the startups were commended for their presentation, direction and feasibility.
