RMB Private Bank Board Of Directors
RMB is a people-driven organisation where employees are encouraged and empowered to challenge the boundaries, question the norm and treat the business as though it’s their own. While most corporate and investment banks compete on the same basis, it is RMB’s unique people-driven culture, values and opportunities to develop and grow, that distinguishes us from the rest.
Our people are exceptional thinkers who thrive on complexity. Where others see challenges, they see opportunities. They are Solutionist Thinkers who are inspired and driven to go the extra mile to make a difference in the lives of our clients, our company and the communities in which we operate. These brand custodians respect the spirit of our agreements, they empower and inspire others, they come from diverse backgrounds and disciplines, they strive to be good corporate citizens and they apply innovative thinking to change our world for the better.
