Metro Bank’s risk boss Grahame McGirr is ousted just days before he was due to take up his responsibilities
Grahame McGirr joined Metro Bank as interim chief risk officer on February 10 but was ousted just two weeks later
Metro Bank asked its new interim chief risk officer to leave just days before he was due to take up his responsibilities.
Grahame McGirr joined on February 10 but was ousted just two weeks later, five days before he was due to fill the role on March 1.
A source close to the bank said McGirr was ‘not a good cultural fit’, but declined to give any further information.
The lender said: ‘The bank has asked Aileen Gillan, chief risk officer, to remain until the end of March, while it recruits a new interim.’
The departure comes at a tumultuous time for Metro Bank after the departures of chief executive Craig Donaldson and chairman Vernon Hill.
