The Premier Bank Limited celebrated its 2 decades of successful operations on Tuesday at an event held under the banner of ‘Celebrating 21 years of Growth Together’. 

The event, held at the bank’s head office, was inaugurated by the Premier Bank’s founder Chairman HBM Iqbal, said a press release.
M Reazul Karim, managing director and CEO of Premier Bank, and Golam Awlia, additional managing director of the bank, were also present on the occasion.

In his speech at the celebration, HBM Iqbal said, “Ever since we started way back in 1999, we strived every single day to perform our best and keep our promise of ‘Service first’ which has helped us rise to a position of trust today - while earning the love and respect of the people.”

“Our bank has been playing an important role in the development of various sectors of the country and we have garnered massive success in many different areas. However, without your continuous help and support for the last 20 years, we would not have reached today's position,” he said.

The managing director and CEO of the bank thanked everyone and said, “Despite the effect of pandemic, our deposit has grown by 9.67 per cent from the year end of 2019 (from Tk 20,977.62 crore as on December 31, 2019 to Tk 23,005.41 as on October 25.”

We hope that within the next five years, premier bank will achieve all the parameters and become one of the top most profitable banks in the country,” he added.
