BB&T Receives 20 Greenwich Excellence Awards

The BB&T Small Business and Middle Market banking groups announced they won 20 Greenwich Excellence Awards from Greenwich Associates. The 20 awards include 15 in national categories and five regional awards.

Since 2009 BB&T has earned 103 Greenwich Excellence Awards. The awards are based on interviews with more than 17,000 U.S. small businesses and nearly 14,000 middle-market companies. Of more than 750 banks evaluated, only 43 received Greenwich Excellence Awards in small business and 34 in the middle market.

“BB&T remains focused on the small-business and middle-market banking segments,” said president of Community Banking Ricky Brown. “We are especially pleased since this recognition is from our clients and reflects BB&T’s commitment to the client-focused strategy we deliver through our community banking structure.”

Among the 20 awards, BB&T received honors in overall satisfaction for small business and middle-market companies in both national and regional categories.
