Ulster Bank welcomes chief financial officer

By Clare Weir

Ulster Bank has announced the appointment of a new chief financial officer.

Reporting to the chief executive, Jim Brown, Paul Stanley will also take up a position on the Ulster Bank Board.

Paul has over 30 years experience in the financial services industry. He joins Ulster Bank from Allied Irish Bank (AIB) which he joined in 1980 and served as a senior leader in a range of finance and treasury roles across financial control, treasury operations, capital markets, and asset liability management. He most recently served as acting chief financial officer for AIB.

He was also group financial controller of AIB, a role in which he oversaw key asset disposals and a capital restructuring of AIB Group.

Ulster Bank group chief executive Jim Brown has welcomed Mr Stanley to the company.

"His extensive experience will be a huge benefit to us as we continue to make progress on delivering our business strategy, building a sustainable and valued business that serves our 1.9m customers," he said.

Mr Stanley will replace Charles McManus, who stepped down last year from Ulster Bank.
