Ian Alderton, chief information officer at the corporate division of Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), has left the bank this month, Computer Weekly has learned.
Since joining the taxpayer-owned bank in November 2010, Alderton managed its 400-strong corporate banking technology division under a global remit.
According to Alderton, he “established the vision and strategic plan to rapidly turnaround and energise an underperforming organisation,” while “improving operational efficiencies and overall cost effectiveness by 30%.”
RBS confirmed the CIO’s departure but did not comment on the executive’s claims.
Prior to joining RBS, Alderton worked as an interim CIO for about a year after leaving the post of European CIO for corporate and investment banking technology at the Wachovia Bank.
