Client-centric focus drives success of Utah team

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH — March 13, 2019 — KeyBank Utah has been named the 2018 KeyBank Market of the Year, an award that acknowledges the Utah market as the top performer among the 27 markets in the company’s footprint.

Utah is consistently a top-performer throughout the KeyBank footprint and has been a finalist for the competitive Market of the Year award the last three years in a row. In 2018, the Utah market increased pre-provision net revenue by more than 20 percent year-over-year, and several Utah team members were named among the company’s top individual performers nationwide. The KeyBank Mortgage Operations Center, which opened in Salt Lake in 2016 and serves the entire western half of the U.S., was another important factor in the Utah market receiving the prestigious Market of the Year designation.

This award was bestowed at KeyBank’s annual Chairman’s Awards celebration in Cleveland on February 12. It was presented to Utah Market President Terry Grant and Senior Vice President and Regional Retail Leader Ryan Martin, by Key Community Bank Co-Presidents E.J. Burke and Dennis Devine, as well as KeyCorp Chairman and CEO Beth Mooney.

“After being a finalist for the past three years, we are overjoyed to be named Market of the Year for 2018,” said Utah market president Terry Grant. “We are grateful for all of our amazing clients who trust us to be their partners. This award is a testament to the tireless efforts of our Utah team members, who consistently deliver the best of Key to local clients and our community.”

With the award comes a traveling crystal trophy that will spend the next year visiting each line of business and all 31 branches in Utah.

“Competition for this award is always steep, and we are incredibly proud of the leadership shown by the Utah market over the past several years,” said Devine. “We consider metrics like revenue, collaboration and new client growth when selecting the winner of this award, but what drives all of that success is an unwavering commitment to our clients.”
