RBS hires first ever female CEO

The Royal Bank of Scotland this week revealed that its search for a new Chief Executive has concluded and that Alison Rose will take the position, replacing outgoing head Ross McEwan – who filled the role since 2013. Rose is not only the first female leader for RBS, she’s also now officially the first woman to lead a major UK bank.

Rose, who will start in her new position as Chief Executive and Executive Director of the Boards of RBS, Natwest, National Westminster Banka and Ulster Bank on November 1, climbed through the ranks into increasingly senior positions over the last three decades within RBS.
