4 Finalists announced for Young Banker of the Year 2017
The finalists, representing some of the UK’s best known banks, are:
- Amy Clarke, NatWest
- Joanna Finlay, Virgin Money
- Ian Humphreys, Virgin Money
- Stacy Lamb, Tesco Bank
What idea would you implement in your own organisation to improve outcomes for some or all of the following groups: customers, colleagues, counterparties, communities and the organisation you work for?
The four contestants chosen to participate in the final on Monday 4th September will now have their ideas tested and judged by a panel of industry experts, chaired by the Lord Mayor of London, and including Lady Susan Rice (Chair of the Chartered Banker Professional Standards Board), Dame Colette Bowe (Chair of the Banking Standards Board) and Robert Dickie (President of the Chartered Banker Institute).
The winner will receive a prize of an overseas holiday for two, but more importantly will gain industry-wide recognition as a high potential individual with a great future ahead of them.
An audience prize will also be awarded by the Banking Standards Board, to include the opportunity of a short placement with the BSB.
Simon Thompson, Chief Executive of the Chartered Banker Institute commented: “Our Young Banker of the Year competition, this year celebrating its 30th anniversary, is set for a hugely exciting final. I was privileged to attend both fantastic semi-finals, in Manchester and Edinburgh, and to hear the great ideas put forward by this year’s semi-finalists – all of whom can be very proud of their achievements. This year’s competition has been bigger, better and of a higher standard than I can remember, and I can’t wait for the Final in September."
