BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, WI - Regional financial services institution, CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank, has announced the appointment of Ms Colette Delaney, as its new Chief Executive Officer, effective November 1, 2018. She succeeds Mr Gary Brown, who retires on October 31, 2018.

In making the announcement, Chairman, Mr David Ritch, said, Ms Colette brings a wealth of experience and strong leadership to the bank.  

Speaking to her new appointment, Ms Delaney in a CIBC public statement, on September 7, 2018, said, “I am strongly committed to our values of trust, teamwork and accountability and to continuing to build an engaging environment where all employees are respected and recognized for their unique talents and perspectives.

17 countries

CIBC Chairman, Mr Ritch has since expressed the bank’s appreciation to retiring CEO, Gary Brown, who has led its operations across 17 countries—including in the Virgin Islands, since January 2016.

He said, “Gary changed the trajectory of our bank in a number of important ways, not the least of which has been three years of growth in revenues at FCIB…Through his leadership we have improved client service and the day-to-day experience of our employees who serve them.”

Banking Professional

Ms Delaney is a banking professional of more than 30 years experience, having started her career with CIBC in 1987, and prior to that with National Westminster Bank.

She holds a Master of Arts degree from St. Anne’s College, University of Oxford in the United Kingdom, an MBA from Cass Business School in London, and received the designation of Associate of the Chartered Institute of Bankers in the United Kingdom.

She first joined CIBC FirstCaribbean in 2013, and has served as the bank’s Chief Risk and Administrative Officer.

Ms Delaney was subsequently appointed Chief Operating Officer, and is a member of the board of CIBC FirstCaribbean.

      About time we had a local managing this bank!! 2 years before could get an answer if I qualify for a mortgage. Ok if you are not a member of parliament , a doctor, lawyer etc, Ms Dominica wouldn’t assist, her face all ways-vex vex, very Unapproachable, she wasted no time Time In saying close the VG branch, when we come to town , there is a long line and time no provision for Us to get out quickly to take the ferry back up. up. She needs to go back to where she’s from until she learns how to treat her staff and local clients.

    Passing the baton from one old white man to an old white woman, so many brilliant black Caribbean folks, yet they pass us by.

    Ms. Dominica is very disrespectful, I saw her being disrespectful to the premier once, I said Uncle Ralph would have had her a$s on the plane already, it is time after forty years that we have local mangers. do you know of any BVI islander managing a bank in Dominica.
