Royal Bank of Scotland CIO steps down

Angelica Mari

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.
