AUB Gensan Upgraded To Class B Branch

Author: orman | Filed under: Good News Ever

Up to now, I still can’t imagine having survived last week’s events

Killer schedule was how Direk Dino Veloso called it

With three major activities – Bb. Gandang Hari, Lakan at Lakambini and Kasalang Filipino happening consecutively

My adrenaline rush was on hyper-mode the whole time last week

And I am just talking about activities other than being a banker

After the Lakan at Lakambini pageant, I had to fly to Manila last Thursday for my banking chores

I presented two accounts to our Credit Committee which fortunately was a breeze to do

Then it was our Branch Managers’ Conference the next day

I was literally feeling like a zombie as I was nursing a cold and anticipating a seeming asthma attack

So when it came to a surprise announcement –I was not interested at all

I just wanted to get over the day and lie in bed

The announcement was about upgrading the level of an AUB branch

It’s a big deal for Branch Managers when your branch is upgraded

It’s what you call a vindication of all the hard work you’ve done

AUB Gensan started from a Rookie Branch then to Class C Branch

For a branch to qualify as Class B, it has to pass the following criteria:

Total Current/Saving Account Balance should at least hit 200 million pesos

Total Deposit Balance should be 350 million pesos at least

And full year Net Income should be 10 million pesos

Our interest began to perk up when the numbers were flashed onscreen

It was a guessing game for everyone as each criteria was announced

Vis-a-vis the level of THAT Branch (as of year-end 2010) was shown

The numbers looked familiar but my mind was so out of it that I didn’t give it much thought

Names of possible branches were shouted — I just sat tight

Then it hit me — those numbers could be Gensan Branch!

When it was finally announced that it was indeed Gensan Branch

I was flabbergasted and speechless –

All I could muster was to repeatedly mumble:  “I didn’t expect this…”

That’s when I realized that the whole room was applauding

After four years, my Gensan Branch is now Classified “B”

It’s no easy feat – this one – because hitting the Net Income criteria is everyone’s waterloo

That day, Team Gensan stood proud and tall for a job well done

We were the lone branch to be upgraded for the year 2010

And for that one shining moment I silently thank the Lord for His guidance

Banking, these days, is so unlike its yesteryears

Handling a branch is definitely not for the fainthearted

Now multiply that effort by five — that’s how my banking routine is — daily!

As I write this, memories of my parents come rushing back in

I miss them so bad and wish I could personally tell them the good news

I am certain that they’re proud of my accomplishments

This year’s going to be tougher times for the industry

For AUB Team Mindanao, it means two additional branches

And hitting our goals quarterly and by year-end, we hope to be smiling from ear to ear

Now — that Class A level looks very enticing…
