The Future Branches Innovators Awards - Nominations

Our second annual innovators awards will be your chance to nominate your fellow finance leaders who have succeeded in the categories of design, customer experience and technology.

Our awards will be a fantastic way to recognize the game changing ways that your peers are approaching branch transformation. Nominating colleagues or clients for a Innovators Award is a great opportunity recognize their hard work, while also celebrating your successes. The winners of each category are announced and showcased at the annual Future Branches Austin conference that takes place in early December.
