The country’s largest bank in terms of customers, BPR Rwanda (part of Atlas Mara) on Wednesday unveiled a modern new branch in Kisimenti, Remera to bring its services closer to its clients.
The event also served as one to introduce the bank’s new CEO, Maurice K. Toroitich, who replaces Sanjeev Anand, who was promoted to Atlas Mara Group Managing Director for Retail and Commercial Banking Operations following key management changes earlier this year.
“We are excited to have Maurice on board, who will drive both the day-to-day business and ensure that the long-term goals of BPR remain on course and are unobstructed,” Anand said.
Speaking on the new branch opening, the guest of honor, Peace Masozera, Director of Financial Stability at the National Bank of Rwanda (BNR), noted that with the new branch strategically located along the airport road, BPR stands to serve its customers better.
“I want to congratulate you for opening this new home for your clients to add to the many that you have in your network. This is a prominent location and for many visitors that will be coming into the country, this will be one of their initial contact places,” she said.
CEO Toroitich remarked that the new modern branch is one of many more BPR will open around the country as it re-designs all branches to improve customer experience.
“We are opening this beautiful branch today to show our customers that we are here to offer the best banking experience to all,” he said.
