Now Accepting Nominations for Celent Model Bank 2012

Now Accepting Nominations for Celent Model Bank 2012
Remember when banking was broadly embraced as an honorable profession? That idea seems to have been lost among most businesses and consumers these days. Hardly a day goes by without a news story about some sort of alleged bank impropriety. In sharp contrast, Celent seeks to celebrate financial institutions doing things well. Each year, we honor a hand-picked selection of financial institutions who model excellent utilization of technology in banking. Celent Model Bank 2011 winners received recognition at our annual Innovation and Insight Day this past May in Atlanta, GA.
