Zions Bancorporation has been recognized by financial services consulting and research company Greenwich Associates as one of the nation’s top banks in nine national and two regional categories in middle market banking.
The survey is conducted annually with nearly 13,000 businesses across the U.S. with sales of $10 million to $500 million. Of the more than 750 banks eligible to win an award, only 33 were cited for distinctive quality, with Zions cited in 11 of 12 categories.
Zions chairman and CEO Harris Simmons said in nine of the 10 national categories and in both regional categories the commercial bankers are considered by their clients to be the best in the industry.
Zions’ growth rate over the past year is more than double that of the industry, Simmons said.
In the West region, the bank received overall satisfaction from its customers.
“Overall, these awards demonstrate the dedication of our bankers to providing the highest quality products and exceptional customer service day after day, year after year,” Simmons said.
Zions Bancorporation operates businesses under local management teams and community identities through nearly 500 offices in the West, including Idaho.
