Cellulant, a Pan-African payments technology company, was named as the ‘Top Payments Gateway Brand in Kenya” at the Top Star Brand Awards 2022. This award recognises Cellulant as a leader in fintech and payments acknowledging the company’s commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction.
The Top Star Brand Awards recognise the “crème de la crème” brands that authentically lead their respective industries in brand presence. Star brands are those that have achieved milestones, have a history of success, and, most importantly, have established themselves as trendsetters for newcomers to the industry.
It is a display of those brands that have acquired unparalleled branding standards and have all the necessary components to become household names on a global scale. The awards are organized by Digital Events Ltd in conjunction with an independent panel of judges drawn from digital tech consultants, academia, IT professional bodies, relevant government department representatives, industry networks, and the media.
“We are honored to receive this award and be recognised as a Top brand in Kenya. Owing to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have seen a significant shift in the use of digital payments in the last 2 years. Cellulant has demonstrated exceptional performance in the payments industry, and we remain dedicated to providing our clients with cutting-edge products and services. This award recognizes our team’s hard work and devotion, and we are grateful for the support of our customers and partners. We are proud to add this award to our list of achievements this year and look forward to continuing to provide for our customer’s needs and support the economy’s growth and success,” said Faith Nkatha Gitonga, Country Manager at Cellulant Kenya.
