Speaker Event – Craig Donaldson – CEO of Metro Bank

by Devonshire House Network

We are delighted that Craig Donaldson, CEO of Metro Bank, has kindly indicated that he’d be happy to speak at Devonshire House in 2019 and we are currently talking about what form this might take and a date (22.05.19 pencilled in).

About Metro Bank

Starting from scratch in London in 2010, Metro Bank has been expanding rapidly ever since. Back to basics might be a fair way of describing their story so far.  The language they use to describe their model and their philosophy include – A fresh start to banking – Changing the way Britain banks – Bringing personal service back to banking – Committed to customer service – Committed to the community – Committed to Kids (Please note that dogs are allowed – watered but not fed!).

Paradoxically, most of the other banks seem to be heading in the opposite direction, inspite of what their rhetoric says.  What sort of bank would you prefer?
