CEO & Executive Director Wendy Warren says the programme was introduced as an integral part of the organisation’s Financial Centre Focus (FCF) outreach, and is designed to recognise role models in the industry for outstanding performance and contribution to the growth and development of the sector.

The Blue Ribbon Panel will select the winner in each category, for announcement at the Awards Banquet on October 27. This year’s event is being hosted in the Balmoral Ballroom of the Sandals Royal Bahamian Spa Resort & Offshore Island.

Also to be recognised at the Awards Banquet are the nominees for the annual **Financial Services Student of the Year**, selected from the graduating class of the College of the Bahamas, School of Business.
