This was followed by Mr Sathyanarayanan Ganesh Executive VP, RBL, welcoming the predominantly women gathering and briefed the guests about the bank and its operations. He said that since women are best at multi-tasking besides being good at managing crisis and are naturally skilled with people relations, he expressed that this was the thought process behind this initiative. He also said that very soon more such branches will be opened. Ms Neeta Mukerji with pride shared that RBL Bank has been recognized by the World Economic Forum as a Global Growth Company besides having earned recognition in various national and international forums such as : CNBC ASIA’s India Talent Management Award (2017); ‘India’s Best Bank (Growth)’ in the ‘SmallSized Bank Segment’ by Business Today-KPMG Best Bank Study for six consecutive years (2012-17). The bank currently services over 3.54 million customers through a network of 246 branches and 389 ATMs spread across 20 Indian states and Union Territories, she added.
The ‘Babes-on Bike’ was another attraction at the event and indeed a novel way to draw attention to the launch.Ms Nina Reddy said that the ride this morning for the women on cycles was a first too! The bicyclists normally ride in the wee hours of the morning and today the were among morning rush hour traffic, without causing a snarl! The ATM of the branch was also inaugurated today by Ms Kavita Modi, who was the first to withdraw cash from the new kiosk.
The start is very promising, all present have expressed their support and this encouragement received will be the strength for the women taking on a new venture. The branch is located at RA Puram, Chennai.
