Keystone Bank Limited has announced the promotion of 627 members of staff between the executive trainee and deputy manager grade.

A statement by the bank quoted the Managing Director, Mr. Philip Ikeazor, as saying that the promotion exercise was 'in line with management's commitment to recognise merit and reward.'

'It is also a major stride in the spirit of fostering and building a high performance and engaged workforce, delivering convenient and reliable banking services to our esteemed customers.'

The criteria for the promotion, he said, were based on performance assessment score, promotion readiness, tenure on current grade and absence of disciplinary actions.

While congratulating the staff, the Keystone Bank boss admonished them to be spurred to 'higher performance and exhibit a more passionate approach towards contributing to and achieving the bank's customer-centric goals.'

According to him, the bank is a technology-driven bank with over 200 business offices in Nigeria and subsidiaries in the Gambia, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Uganda.
