Fe­male to lead Ul­ster Bank in the Repub­lic

Belfast Telegraph - Business Telegraph - - News - BY EL­LIE DON­NELLY

JANE Howard has been con­firmed as the new chief executive of Ul­ster Bank in the Repub­lic.

She joins from its UK par­ent Royal Bank of Scot­land where she served as a se­nior executive, most re­cently in the role of man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of per­sonal bank­ing.

Ms Howard re­places Belfast man Gerry Mal­lon, who has joined Tesco Bank as its new chief executive.

Paul Stan­ley, chief fi­nan­cial of­fi­cer of Ul­ster Bank — who was serv­ing as in­terim chief executive, will be ap­pointed deputy chief from next month.

The ap­point­ment means that two of the five main banks in the Repub­lic now have a fe­male chief executive.

This is a dra­matic turn­around since last Oc­to­ber when Bank of Ire­land’s Francesca Mcdon­agh be­came the first woman ever to head up a ma­jor bank in the Repub­lic.

Ul­ster Bank chair­man Des O’shea said: “We are de­lighted that Jane will join us as chief executive of Ul­ster Bank in the Repub­lic.

“Jane brings a track record of strong lead­er­ship, in­tense cus­tomer fo­cus, drive and en­thu­si­asm.”
