(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Bank Sohar was recently named the Best Financial Brand Oman 2014' by UK-based Global Brands Magazine. The award was presented after the renowned independent branding magazine analysed Bank Sohar's performance across 14 categories, encompassing every aspect of its business.  


Commenting on the award, Dr Mohamed Abdulaziz Kalmoor, CEO of Bank Sohar, said, ''We are delighted and appreciative of this global recognition that we have received recently. This award and the numerous other awards that Bank Sohar has received in the recent past are a testimony to the solid foundation that the bank has been built upon.''


''This is a reflection of where we stand as a financial institution and brand within the financial sector.  In a relatively short seven years, we have managed to make significant strides, not only towards ensuring sound fundamentals, but also towards giving back to the economy we serve,'' added Kalmoor.

Headquartered in the UK, Global Brands Magazine is an independent branding magazine that was established with the aim of honouring excellence in performance and rewarding companies across different sectors.
