“I believe that now is a good time to hand over the leadership of the Bank as it embarks on its next phase of growth. It’s been a privilege to lead HLBB through a period of significant digital and technological transformation, changes in customers’ preferences and needs, and through the unprecedented pandemic period, as well as the initial stages of the multi-year ESG/sustainability journey”.
