Another NCB manager leaves company
Euton Cummings, former Senior Vice-President for Group Human Resources and Facilities Division at NCB

THE NCB Financial Group on Tuesday said Euton Cummings, its senior vice-president for group human resources and facilities division, has left the organisation.

The release posted on the Trinidad and Tobago Stock Exchange said Cummings will be leaving "due to personal reasons".

"The group acknowledges his contribution to the organisation and wishes him the very best in his future endeavours," the release continued.

It added that Dr Hopelin Hines will lead the division going forward.

The announcement comes as the NCB Financial Group announced that it has selected Angus Young to be the chief executive officer of NCB Capital Markets Limited (NCBCM) effective October 1, 2023. Young replaces Steven Gooden, who resigned from NCB Capital Markets last Friday along with four other managers.

NCB Financial Group said Young brings a wealth of experience to the position, having held the positions of head of regional investment banking and new markets – NCBCM and CEO of NCB Merchant Bank (Trinidad and Tobago) Limited.

So far in the last two months, seven senior executives in the NCB Financial Group have left their positions as the company charts a new course focused on being more efficient, improving corporate governance and enhancing customer service, a focus the entity's chairman dubs "EGC".

In August, the group CEO Patrick Hylton and his deputy, Dennis Cohen, were separated from the company.

At the end of September, Septimus "Bob" Blake, who was the CEO of NCB Jamaica; Vernon James, who was the CEO of The Future of Business (TFOB 2021) which operates the Lynk digital wallet; Nadeen Matthews Blair, vice-president, Group Marketing, Communications, Analytics, and Digital, and CEO, NCB Foundation; and Gabrielle Banbury-Kelly, who was the vice-president in the Group Transformation Office, all left the company.
