This year’s awards recipients for the Americas were recognized during a virtual ceremony on Wednesday, Dec. 1, hosted by The Banker’s Economics Editor Silvia Pavoni. MVB Bank was the only financial institution to receive the Bank of the Year – United States honor.

"Team MVB is extremely excited and grateful to be named Bank of the Year – United States for 2021 by the prestigious publication, The Banker," said Larry F. Mazza, President and CEO, MVB Financial, who accepted the award during the ceremony. "We are very grateful to our Teammates who work hard every day to make good things happen.

The 2021 edition highlights those institutions that have outshone their peers in terms of performance, strategic initiatives and response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"The competition was incredibly hard this year as institutions across the world raised their game with digital transformation, customer experience and bringing environmental, social and governance criteria to the fore. The judging committee’s deliberations on all the various categories were long and hard, but we relish the challenge," said Joy Macknight, Editor of The Banker, during the ceremony. "On behalf of The Banker editorial team, I congratulate all the winners once again for their stellar performances and achievements in 2021."
