Celebrating its milestone two decades in operation as a highly successful corporate steward and financial services industry leader, Citizens Development Business Finance PLC (CDB) gave its credo of stakeholder responsibility true meaning when it felicitated the loyalty and dynamism of team members who have undoubtedly been the axis of its successful journey.
Felicitating those who have been with CDB for over 10 years or more, the company places its team as the raison d’etre behind its success, crediting them with unparalleled dedication, unmatched service mindset and most of all an unwavering need to innovate, which has undoubtedly given CDB a competitive edge.

They have aligned themselves to ensure that CDB’s vision that is centred on the cornerstones of entrepreneurship, innovation and elevation of stakeholder lifestyles, is realised. To us, this makes up the heart and soul of what CDB is all about.” For the past 20 years, the CDB team has been an inherent part of positioning CDB as a formidable player within the financial services industry, achieving its mission of enriching people’s life through extension of financial services by a people driven business approach built on human emotions, human passion and human spirit. Hence, to recognise, honour and express gratitude for their industriousness, innovative capabilities and unmatched excellence in everything they do, the felicitation ceremony also included other rewards for team members whose passion and loyalty to CDB remains unmatched.
