Trinity Business Alumni (TBA) was delighted to invite David Duffy, Chief Executive Officer of Clydesdale Bank, to address a special Dinner in Camera on the 14th April in the Dining Hall, Trinity College.
David shared his experiences in the banking sector; in February 2016, he successfully led and completed the demerger and IPO of CB from NAG re-creating a fully independent banking group, CYBG PLC. CYBG operates the Clydesdale Bank and Yorkshire Bank brands in the UK, and has a shareholder base spanning the UK, US and Australia. CYBG is the only UK banking group to have a dual listing on the London Stock Exchange and Australian Securities Exchange. David addressed some interesting challenges including the need for a culture change. He recently gave an interview with the Irish Times which can be viewed here.
After dinner, Tom McAleese, President of TBA, chaired a lively Q&A with the audience.
