News : Islamic Bank of Britain Appoints Head of IT & Change
Nov 6, 2014 -- Islamic Bank of Britain plc (IBB), announces the promotion of Matthew Glover to the newly created positon of Head of IT & Change. Mr Glover's remit is to manage the Bank's transformation programme as it enters a period of expansion.
His is the third senior appointment this year, including Keith Leach as Chief Commercial Office and the confirmation of Sultan Choudhury as Chief Executive Officer. All three appointments have followed the Bank's acquisition, in early 2014, by Masraf Al Rayan (QSC). IBB also recently announced that subject to formal shareholder approval, it will be changing its name from Islamic Bank of Britain to Al Rayan Bank, in December 2015.
Commenting on his appointment, Mr Glover said, "These are exciting times for IBB, and I am delighted to be heading the Bank's IT and change programme. This will play an important role in the future development of the Bank as it seeks to achieve significant growth."
Mr Glover was promoted to the position from his role as Change Delivery Manager in recognition of his achievements during the IBB business transformation project, which began in 2012. During this he was involved in the implementation of Salesforce as the Bank's customer relationship management (CRM) and lead management system to facilitate the Bank's move towards a more direct model of operation.
Mr Glover joined IBB in 2007 as Branch Operations Manager, responsible for the control and service aspects of the IBB branch network. Before this he worked as a Senior Branch Manager and Area Manager for the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) group.
