Managing director of retail banking and small business, Rolf Phillips, has decided to take early retirement, and will leave the bank, effective immediately, the bank said in a release on Wednesday.
Daniel Farmer, the managing director of the Barbados business, has been appointed as the new managing director of retail banking and small business, replacing Phillips.
Mark St. Hill, the director of international wealth, has been appointed the new managing director of the bank’s Barbados business, replacing Farmer.
Chief executive officer Douglas 'Rik' Parkhill noted: “Rolf was a key player in the core team that launched CIBC FirstCaribbean’s international banking business in the region.”
Parkhill said Philips “has also led the residential business segment of CIBC FirstCaribbean’s retail business, and during his career with the bank, he also held senior roles as sales and performance director of wealth management and as managing director.”
