Banking group Citi has announced the appointment of Dennis Evans as cluster head for the Caribbean, in addition to his current responsibility of country corporate officer (CCO) for the Trinidad hub, which includes Barbados.
In this capacity, all Caribbean CCOs—from The Bahamas, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Jamaica and Puerto Rico—will report to Evans, Citi said in a statement from its Port of Spain office.
Additionally, product and function heads covering the Caribbean will matrix report to Evans, ensuring total accountability and alignment of our strategy and priorities for the Cluster, the bank stated.
Evans is a "well-established and recognised senior leader with more than three decades of experience in banking", Citi said. He began his career in the financial services sector, having worked for the Royal Bank in the early to mid-70s.
From there, he moved to the corporate sector, where he spent a short time before moving on to his long and successful career in Citibank as a credit officer at the Port of Spain office.
He later held various positions in Citi Trinidad, including corporate bank head, director of Citibank (Trinidad and Tobago) Ltd, director of Citicorp Merchant Bank and franchise head for Unbranched Territories in the Caribbean.
In January 2000, he became the corporate bank head for Citibank in Poland, oversaw the merger of the two corporate banks and assumed responsibility for the merged Corporate Bank of Bank Handlowy. In 2004, he served as the global relationship bank head for Citi in Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa.
In July 2004, he assumed his current position as managing director with responsibility for Trinidad and Barbados. He also has the responsibility for corporate business in Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, The Bahamas, Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Turks and Caicos, the Eastern Caribbean, Guyana and Suriname, the bank said.
