Aldermore Group PLC today announces changes to the Bank’s executive team. Dana Cuffe has joined the Bank as Chief Operating Officer (COO) with executive responsibility for CIO, Group Central Operations and Transformation & Change. Dana has over 30 years’ experience in financial services. For the past six years he has been in a senior leadership role at RenaissanceRe as their first global CIO. He also spent three years as the CIO of Egg – where he was responsible for revamping what was the world’s largest online bank. 

Paul Myers, currently COO will become Group Corporate Development Director with executive responsibility for Strategy, Corporate Affairs, Digital, Marketing and the Bank’s Savings business. This follows the recent decision of Vicki Harris, Group Strategy and Marketing Director, to leave the Bank to pursue new opportunities.

Paul has been Chief Operating Officer and a member of the executive team since the Bank was established in 2009, leading Aldermore’s IT, Operations and Transformation agendas through its build and growth phrases.

The above changes, which are subject to regulatory approval, follow the recent appointment of Christine Palmer as Chief Risk Officer. Christine joined Aldermore in April from RBS where she held senior risk roles for the last 13 years of her career.

Phillip Monks, CEO, commented:

“Over the last seven years, Aldermore has grown from effectively a start-up business into a FTSE 250 company. The executive changes we have announced will further deepen the expertise of our leadership team and drive the Bank’s future growth aspirations.

“I’d like to thank Vicki for her hard work over the last few years and wish her every success for the future. Dana and Christine join the Bank at an exciting time, as we look to build on our track record of strong profitable growth. Paul is a founding father of the Bank and his commitment and expertise has played a significant role in Aldermore’s success. All three bring extensive experience to their new roles and I’m delighted that they have chosen to be part of Aldermore’s future.”
