Significant changes are underway in the executive ranks of NCB Jamaica Limited, a core subsidiary of the NCB Financial Group. Today, a series of new appointments were unveiled following yesterday’s resignation of former NCB CEO Septimus Blake and the subsequent nomination of Bruce Bowen, pending regulatory approval. These adjustments are part of a strategic initiative aimed at streamlining the organization’s structure, enhancing responsiveness, and bringing NCB closer to its customers.

Among the notable appointments is Sheree Martin, who previously served as Senior Vice President (SVP) of Retail Banking & Customer Experience. She now assumes the role of Executive Vice President (EVP) for the Retail Banking Division and takes on additional responsibilities for Group Marketing, Communications, and Digital.

Dave Garcia, formerly the General Counsel, will now hold the title of EVP, Legal and Corporate Services, serving both NCB Jamaica and NCB Financial Group.

Tanya Watson-Francis, currently Senior Vice President of the Treasury & Correspondent Banking Division, has been appointed EVP, of Treasury & Capital Management.

Malcolm Sadler, who served as the interim Chief Financial Officer (CFO) for NCB Financial Group, has officially taken on the role of Group CFO.

Jacqueline De Lisser, transitioning from her interim CFO position at NCB Jamaica, is now the bank’s CFO.
