The position of Retail Banking Director is a newly created role for Permanent TSB and is part of recent changes at Executive Committee (ExCO) level to ensure the Bank is structured internally to deliver on both its customer and commercial agenda.

Patrick’s early career was with Bank of Ireland, where he held a number of product and segment management roles. After eight years, he moved to Ulster Bank where he worked in a number of senior management roles, including Head of Retail Strategy and Marketing. He then moved to AIB in 2013 as Head of Private Banking before moving to his current role in 2016.
Commenting on the appointment, Permanent TSB CEO, Jeremy Masding, said; “The appointment of a Retail Banking Director is about ensuring that we are structured internally to service the commercial agenda and deliver the right customer outcomes. Patrick is a seasoned business leader with the right level of experience to lead the delivery of the customer, commercial and distribution strategy for the future. I’ve no doubt he will be a huge asset to the Bank and I look forward to welcoming him to the team in the coming months’.
