“Karnataka Bank has successfully completed its first year of transformational journey and the new approach towards business is driven by technology and is reaping the benefits on a sustainable basis. The new business model is guided by highest standards of corporate governance, effective risk management and by adhering to compliance parameters” said Shri Mahabaleshwara M.S, MD & CEO, of the Bank while addressing the Regional Heads of the Bank in their annual review meet at Mangaluru, today.
He further said, “The blue print of Bank’s new business approach anchoring on the Regional Sales Executive (RSE) concept is already rolled out. RSEs along with their dedicated sales team will act as the new business facilitators/enablers to supplement the branch heads and the concept will be expanded to all the major business centres across India for different verticals both under the asset and liability side. Bank will further strengthen this new credit delivery model by effective use of technology under the Bank’s recently opened Digital Centre of Excellence (DCOE) concept. Bank will work as one team and will also re-align its leadership style across the cadre both in terms of attitude and approach. With this outlook I am sure that, time has come for the Bank to shift the gear and make a strong pitch for its aspirational transformation journey”.
