Mr John Awuah, the Chief Executive Officer of UMB, said the new branch is part of the bank’s strategy to enhance customer convenience by investing in the expansion of both physical and digital channels.

He explained that the expansion of the bank’s physical presence is critical for meeting the current needs of customers.

He noted that the Bank had taken steps to capitalise on advances in technology to lead the market in digital banking.

“In the next few years, you can expect to see a UMB that is more technology oriented and that takes even more innovative steps to meet and shape customer experiences,” he stated.

The Board Chairperson of UMB, Mrs Elizabeth Zormelo remarked that the Directors are very proud of the Bank’s achievements over the past two years.

“Our new Sakaman branch is designed to enhance the experience of our customers and I am very confident that our presence in Sakaman/Dansoman will enrich the community and also add value to businesses in the area,” she said.

Mr Lawrence Appiah-Baiden, UMB’s Director of Retail also highlighted the fact that since its rebranding in 2014, UMB has been strengthening its presence in the retail banking space.

“We will be opening branches in locations where we are underrepresented to remain within close proximity to our clients,” he said.

Mr Appiah-Baiden expressed the hope that individuals and businesses within Sakaman, Dansoman, Mallam and its environs would take advantage of the superior customer service and quality banking products that the UMB had to offer.
