From 4 September 2014, our Standard Bank’s South African Twitter handle will change from @StandardBankGrp to @StandardBankZA. This remains the same Twitter community, however under a new name, which will not affect our existing followers in any way. We have chosen to introduce this new name as it’s simpler, easier to find and is in line with all of our other country specific Twitter handles within the Standard Bank Group.
Our board Chairman, Mr Atedo Nari Atowari Peterside, was recently appointed to the board of our parent company, Standard Bank Group Limited as well as the board of The Standard Bank of South Africa Limited with effect from 22 August 2014.
This appointment was announced by the Chairman of Standard Bank Group, Mr. Fred Phaswana.
Sponsorships often make it possible for an event to take place. It sometimes also cuts the cost of attending an event, even makes it possible for people to participate free or at a lower cost. A sponsorship may even make it possible for the excitement of an event to be shared with a larger audience through TV, radio or online.
Like any other business, we consider carefully what sponsorships we choose to take on. Besides helping us build our brand, Standard Bank Group considers what people in our various market segments are passionate about. We also consider opportunities for development.
