AmBank Group has bagged three awards at the Malaysian e-Payments Excellence Awards (MEEA), reflecting the Group’s commitment to delivering a seamless banking experience for customers and partners as part of its digital transformation journey.

The MEEA is an annual event that recognises the outstanding achievements and contributions of banks, businesses and government agencies that have contributed significantly towards the growth of the electronic payment industry in Malaysia.

AmBank Group was honoured with the awards for:

  • Outstanding Contribution to MyDebit – fourth consecutive year
  • Outstanding Contribution to JomPAY – fourth consecutive year
  • Top JomPAY Acquirer

The awards were presented by Peter Schiesser, Group Chief Executive Officer, Payments Network Malaysia Sdn Bhd (PayNet) to Dato’ Sulaiman Mohd Tahir, Group Chief Executive Officer, AmBank Group.

In his acceptance speech, Dato’ Sulaiman Mohd Tahir, Group Chief Executive Officer of AmBank Group, said, “We are honoured to be recognised for Outstanding Contribution to JomPAY and MyDebit for the fourth year running and indeed it is a privilege to be named Top JomPAY Acquirer this year. Indeed, this achievement is a testament to our commitment and our continual effort to encourage customers and partners to utilise JomPAY as an accessible bill payment eco-system as well as our continuous commitment expanding MyDebit payment acceptance via our merchant network nationwide.

“The year 2020 has been a watershed for businesses and consumers alike, as they have had to accelerate the digitalisation of payments and collections due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This new norm is set to continue and we are keen to do our part to help Malaysians propel the growth of cashless payments in the country,” concluded Dato’ Sulaiman Mohd Tahir.

MEEA is organised by PayNet, Malaysia's premier payments network and central infrastructure for financial markets.
