The Jersey Bankers Association (JBA) is pleased to announce the appointment of Richard Ingle as its new President.
Mr Ingle is the Chief Executive Officer of Standard Chartered Bank in Jersey and succeeds Chris Blampied from Royal Bank of Canada, who has now completed his two-year term leading the local industry body.
Commenting on his appointment, Mr Ingle said “I was honoured to be asked to stand as President and I look forward to representing the interests of the diverse range of member banks. In these times of continual change, the JBA has an important role to play in engaging with its members and working closely with its partners at home and overseas. Many of the international initiatives developed in response to the financial crisis are starting to come to fruition and it will be critical that Jersey banks have a voice to ensure their contribution is clearly understood and valued by the local and international community.”
Mr Ingle added, “On behalf of the association, I would like to thank Chris Blampied for his stewardship over the last two years.”
The JBA is also pleased to announce that Jerry Whitsey, Head of Products and Marketing at RBS International, has succeeded Mr Ingle as Vice-President of the association.
