Citi: Hoop springs eternal
In Citi’s desperate attempt to win the coveted best bank in Honduras award it drew on all its staff’s experiences from the past 12 months. In the column entitled 2008 Recognition & Awards, the US bank was proud to announce its community service prize... all well and good. But it was also keen to bring to Euromoney’s attention its prowess on the sporting field: "First place in the Basketball Bank Association League, Male Category."
Sadly for Citi, its basketball talents still didn’t quite put the award into its hands. Maybe, if the bank had also won in the Female Category Euromoney would have reconsidered.
