ANSA McAL strengthens their finance team in Barbados
Ansa McAl Barbados Ltd has strengthened its financial management team with the recent appointments of two internationally experienced, Caribbean born managers.
Paul Inniss and Rolf Philips have been recruited and appointed to the posts of General Managers of Brydens Insurance and Consolidated Finance respectively, two of the conglomerate’s key financial companies. Inniss has been in place since December 2012 while Philips joined his team at Consolidated Finance as of January 2nd 2013. They both bring a wealth of experience at the local, regional and international levels to the organisation.
He served as a Regional Manager and built business in a number of Caribbean territories having led several teams at one time or other. He decided to leave the region to ‘sharpen the pencil’ and gained his MBA at the Heriot-Watt University in Scotland before heading to New York to acquire skills and international experience in the financial sector there.
Stating that he is excited to be home, he is looking forward to ensuring that Brydens Insurance becomes one of the leading insurance providers in the Barbados market.
His last role was the position of Managing Director of Retail Banking at CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank where he was also a member of the senior executive team with overall responsibility for 73 retail branches and four customer service centres in 17 territories as well as the Bank’s credit card business. Rolf is an Associate of the Chartered Institute of Bankers in the UK.
On joining the Ansa McAl group he said “I am looking forward to working with the team! The Ansa brand is very strong in Trinidad and Tobago and they have made significant strategic investments to support growth here in Barbados. I am excited to bring my skills and experience to help the group deliver on those growth objectives.”
In commenting on the two recent appointments, CEO of Ansa McAl Barbados Ltd Nicholas Mouttet confirmed “We are happy to have been able to secure the services of these two experienced Caribbean financial professionals. They both bring tremendous value to our group and already they have had some wonderful ideas to take us forward. They are both visionary leaders and I am looking forward to working with them;” he added.
