Byblos Bank receives the “VISA Fastest Growing Portfolio in Levant for 2013” Award

For the second year in a row, Byblos Bank receives the “VISA Fastest Growing Portfolio in Levant” award, in appreciation of its outstanding performance in the card market in Lebanon and on the regional level.

A long-time partner of Byblos Bank, Visa Inc, a multinational financial services corporation operating in 200 countries around the world, prized Byblos Bank for its efforts in reaching out to more customers and for the continuous year-on-year growth of its card portfolio it is achieving. This Award confirms Byblos Bank’s leading position in the card market and the high standard of its state-of-the-art services and products.

Accordingly to Mr. Ramzi Saboury, Lebanon Visa Country Manager: “We are proud to partner with Byblos Bank. We congratulate Byblos Bank for this achievement and we are sure that the coming period will see the Bank achieving more success. As leaders in the electronic payment industry, we are committed to developing innovative solutions with our partners in Lebanon to better serve the needs and demands of their customers while enhancing the convenience, reliability and security of payment methods.”

Mr. Georges Fares, Head of Card Products at Byblos Bank Group, commented: “Over the past few years, we have witnessed a sustained increase in demand for Byblos Bank VISA Cards from affluent and middle-income customers. The reason why Byblos Bank has met such great success is because we act proactively to responding to the real demand on the market, anticipating attitudes and trends, and delivering quality products with high value-added benefits and rewards, as is the case with, “Akram Program”, best known for being the most generous card loyalty program in Lebanon.

The “VISA Fastest Growing Portfolio in Levant” award demonstrates the confidence international corporations have in Byblos Bank and we are surely honored to being recognized by VISA as a leader in the Levant.”
