Former Chief Executive - Alba Bank Limited

Rod is an experienced Bank Chief Executive and Board Member, currently leading a team setting up a new challenger bank for SME, to be based in Glasgow. Alba will be a new bank with a clear vision and purpose – to support small and medium-sized businesses as they develop their aspirations, grow and realise their potential. SMEs are the back-bone of the British economy, driving growth and creating employment, yet they are not given the right level of time and attention by the incumbents in the banking industry. Alba will help SMEs grow by applying specialist expertise and insight while forming strong and lasting relationships with our customers.

Immediately prior to this he was the Chief Executive at Airdrie Savings Bank. A graduate of the University of Glasgow, Rod is also a Fellow of the Chartered Banker Institute. He is well known in the industry, having sat on various regulator panels, delivered industry training and provided media comment. Outside of work Rod’s interests include a lifelong interest in all things theatrical.
