Trinidadian Sean Albert is the new managing director of Scotiabank Barbados and the Caribbean East.
“I want to join our colleagues in the Caribbean in welcoming Sean to Barbados from Scotiabank Trinidad,” said Claude Norfolk, Scotiabank senior vice-president of international banking for the Caribbean region.
“His experience with the bank and in the industry will be a great addition to the Caribbean East team and will serve our operations well as we continue to grow in the region.”
He is expected to chart the growth of Barbados, St Maarten and the Eastern Caribbean states of Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, and St Vincent and the Grenadines.
Since joining Scotiabank in 2005, Albert assumed several senior roles in international banking including director, international mergers and acquisitions and vice president of treasury and capital markets before taking on his previous role in Trinidad and Tobago as senior general manager of the Corporate and Commercial Banking Centre and managing director of Scotia Trust and Merchant Bank (T&T) Limited.
Albert holds Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in economics, both from the University of the West Indies and is a chartered financial analyst.
“Within Scotiabank Caribbean East, we will continue to build on a strategic platform that is underpinned by leadership, prudent risk management and innovation,” Albert said. “The global economic recession continues to throw challenging times at us and we have to manage the lag effect of the extended economic recession carefully. Despite this, we have to look to the future with confidence. Scotiabank’s medium term outlook remains positive.” (PR)
